Combining the unabashedly innovative spirit of education technology with the academic rigor and excellence of one of the nation's top-ranked education schools, the Jefferson Education Accelerator aspires to bring transparency and a relentless focus on outcomes to evaluating and supporting the most promising education solutions.

A public-private partnership cultivated by the Curry School of Education Foundation, the Jefferson Education Accelerator provides business development mentorship, analysis, networking opportunities, access to financing, and most importantly, evaluation of products and services to growth-stage companies in the education sector.

The Curry School Foundation seeks support for the ongoing operations of the Accelerator, as well as investments in the private venture fund known as the Jefferson Education Fund.
