Over the past two years, LearnLaunch has grown and expanded its offerings. To reflect that growth, we have decided to rebrand our organization to better reflect who we are.
Today, we are introducing a comprehensive new website. There are three organizations housed under the umbrella of the LearnLaunch brand: LearnLaunch Institute, LearnLaunch Accelerator, and LearnLaunch Campus.
LearnLaunch Institute (formerly known as LearnLaunch) is the new name for our non-profit, which was founded in November 2012. It received its official 501c3 status this past June. Its mission continues to be connecting and supporting the stakeholders in the Boston area edtech ecosystem through monthly events, conferences, peer learning groups, and a job board.
LearnLaunch Accelerator (formerly known as LearnLaunchX) is the new name for our accelerator program. Over the past 15 months, the program has groomed 13 edtech companies in two cohorts. The partners have raised a microfund from private investors to support the development and growth of digital innovations to improve results and cost effectiveness in the education sector. The third cohort will begin in February 2015.
LearnLaunch Campus (formerly known as Exponential Techspace) is the new name for our edtech co-working space. There are now over 30 companies growing their products and teams in the space, which is located in Back Bay next to several of the biggest digital learning companies in the U.S., including Pearson and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The space is a hive of edtech activity, with regular visits from strategic industry players and educators.
Thanks for your support! You are playing a major role in creating innovative solutions for the challenges of education and learning today, expanding the number of educators who are excited by the prospect of digital innovations to enhance student learning, and developing an important new economic cluster in New England.
