SEK Lab, the first global education startup accelerator in Spain, has launched the call for entries for its third year, which will kick off on 2 October. The most innovative startups in education have until 15 September to submit their entries to be chosen for this vertical accelerator sponsored and organised by SEK Education Group, pioneers in education for 125 years.
The accelerator scheme searches for startups with a prototype or a product on the market that already has traction, since the aim is to make them grow, and with a full-time team and clients and customers lined up.
In the past two years a total of 80 startups were submitted, with eight being selected for each year. The selected startups will be given support from mentors specialised in education over six months and masterclasses from top professionals to make their business grow.
Furthermore, students, teachers and lecturers at SEK International Schools and Camilo José Cela University will be the first to enjoy these cutting-edge educational initiatives, and the teams working on the short-listed projects will be given the chance to attend professional events, networking activities with partners and, finally, the Demo Day, where they will be able to showcase their projects to investors, investments funds, technology partners and the educational sector.
A launch pad to a bright future
SEK Lab has helped several winning startups to become SEK Education Group providers, with applications to improve parent-school communication, learning music by association or learning sciences through virtual reality, among others.
