If your nonprofit or business is working to improve academic outcomes with technology, pay attention to this lesson.

AT&T’s national Aspire Accelerator is accepting apps for its fourth class of edtech organizations. That could include, say, companies behind literacy apps or nonprofits that bring coding lessons to online learners.

Perks include:

  • $100,000 investment
  • Mentorship from an “entrepreneur in residence” and others in the Aspire network
  • UI/UX design services

Participation in the accelerator doesn’t require relocation. The 2017 class included one Pennsylvania company, Zulama, based out of Pittsburgh.

Special consideration will be given to organizations supporting underserved students. According to a release, of the accelerator’s alumni orgs, 58 percent have been women-led and 37 percent have been minority-led.

Apps are open through Jan. 27, and the program begins in April. Learn more about the program here.
