The AT&T Aspire Accelerator is working to close the homework gap through entrepreneurship and technology.

With millions of students still learning in remote or blended settings, AT&T is looking for EdTech startups creating solutions to improve online learning experiences in and out of the classroom. The eight ventures selected into this year’s class will build on a history of innovation that began with the Accelerator’s creation in 2015.

Whether through free online learning libraries, science-based gamification, or virtual reality field trips, the 40-plus startups that have participated in the program have enriched the lives of more than 45 million young people, driving EdTech adoption and creating equity in education.

Accelerator participant benefits include:

  • Aspire Investment
    $100,000 AT&T Aspire investment and an additional $25,000 to cover costs associated with the program
  • National Platform
    Be a part of the broader AT&T Aspire initiative that’s committed to driving innovation in education and skilling on a national scale
  • Customized Program
  • Access to expertise, services, and relationships tailored to each organization throughout the 4-6 month program

Abigail Jewett, AT&T Connecticut Regional Vice President, External and Legislative Affairs encourages Connecticut startups to apply. “I would love if a Connecticut EdTech startup got a shot at this!” she said.

Applications for the 2021 AT&T Aspire Accelerator are being accepted now through February 16.
