Boston-based ed tech accelerator LearnLaunchX has announced their inaugural Demo Day, to be held on Wednesday, September 18, 2013. The first cohort of LearnLaunchX companies are set to pitch their companies to investors and members of the ed tech community—the culmination of 3 months of formal mentorship and collaboration through the accelerator program.
LearnLaunchX co-founder Jean Hammond describes Demo Day as a new beginning rather than an ending. “On Demo Day our graduates will get to explain to a room full of potential investors why they have unique and exciting products to support teachers, help administrators, and enable parents all in the support of better learning,” says Hammond. “And the investment crowd will get to be in on the dawning of a new era … one in which the power of innovation is unleashed on the learning and education industries.”
LearnLaunchX’s Demo Day is being held in Boston’s District Hall, a new building in Boston’s Innovation District that serves as part social hub, part meeting and event space for Boston’s startup community.
Interested investors and edtech community members should email Operations Director Asad Butt for more information.
