iHub  Kenya has announced a partnership with Mastercard Foundation, aimed at empowering Edtech startups in Africa through an Accelerator Program.

The Edtech Accelerator Program is seeking startups building products that enhance learning outcomes and accelerate access to equitable and quality education for Africa’s next generation.

The program will initially support 12 startups in Kenya in the first year and 36 startups over the next 3 years.

Startups applying for this program must be Africa-focused and incorporated in Kenya. They should be building solutions that address challenges across K-12, formal education, informal education, school management systems, tertiary education, corporate learning, and vocational skills training.

Through the course of the program, the selected Edtech startups will benefit in various ways including;

  • Equity-free funding of USD 100K
  • Expert advisory from learning science, product development, marketing and sales, and talent management,
  • Coaching and mentoring by successful founders and experts,
  • Networking opportunities, and
  • Access to a pool of investors.

“We are seeking brilliant innovators with groundbreaking EdTech solutions that can revolutionize the way we learn, from early childhood to corporate education,” the organizations said in a statement.

The program is part of a $15 million accelerator program announced by Nigeria-based innovation hub Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB) that aims to support 72 startups across the continent.
