Emerge Education is a 3 month, London based accelerator programme for startups aiming to improve educational outcomes worldwide
The Programme is appropriate for edtech startups that span all stages of development: from functional prototypes to those with more significant traction seeking to expand into the UK market.
31 Jul 2017
Each startup will receive a net £15,000 stipend for the programme:
They take 3-8% equity in your startup, and a £10,000 programme fee, which is paid directly from the £25,000 invested into your business. Emerge Education does not receive the fee until the investment has been made.
OTHER KEY DATES
Note that they process applications on a rolling basis.
The deadline stated has been estimated as it was not provided. The estimate was based on the starting period of EE8 being August 2017.
Startups are encouraged to be in London for the majority of the programme to maximise the value they can get. The most important parts to be present in London are the initial fourteen days, and the two last weeks including Demo Day.
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
