US edtech accelerator LearnLaunch opens applications for Breakthrough programme

Does your edtech startup have a proven product-market fit, repeatable annual revenue of up to $250 000 and plans to enter the US market? Then you’ll want to consider applying to join the next cohort of LearnLaunch Accelerator‘s Breakthrough programme.

The Breakthrough Accelerator programme aims to assist edtech entrepreneurs to make the “next leap” in their businesses. Applications, which opened last Wednesday (23 January), are set to close on 22 February.

To be considered for the programme, applicants must be at the revenue stage, with at least six months of runway as well as an experienced core operations team.

Applications for LearnLaunch Accelerator’s Breakthrough programme will close on 22 February

The Boston-based accelerator will announce the selected startups on 5 April, thereafter, the programme will kick off on 6 May and run until 7 June.

Personalised plans for selected startups

The first phase of the accelerator programme will see LearnLaunch carry out a deep dive with selected startups, after which they will be introduced to the accelerator’s mentor and partner network. In addition, LearnLaunch will create personalised plans for each selected startup.

Once the programme commences, participants will meet regularly with their assigned mentors and venture partners to ensure they meet their goals and milestones.

Programme participants will also benefit from intensive company-specific workshops in areas such as business model optimisation, finance and product roadmapping.

In addition, those startups that meet their milestones and goals stand to benefit from investments of up to $120 000.
