I was sent this link via email and while I'm not sure exactly what to make of it, I nonetheless found it interesting (and worth passing along). The bulk of the post is a list of ten startup companies seeded with $30K from Kaplan, each developing some typew of educational technology. They each now have a product and a pitch, and have raised substantial sums of money. Newsela, for example, "personalized literacy solutions using current news content," is raising $1.2 million, with $900,000 committed. The projects are incubated by Kaplan’s EdTech Accelerator, which has the backing of startup accelerator TechStars.
