The EDUCATE 2.0 Programme is an ERDF part-funded EdTech research accelerator run by globally recognised partners F6SBESA, and EDUCATE Ventures Research Ltd.

The most successful EdTech businesses combine technological innovation with an understanding of the needs of learners. EDUCATE 2.0  promotes excellence in the EdTech community by providing a comprehensive training and mentoring programme designed to help start-ups, SMEs, entrepreneurs and educators develop, evaluate and improve their products and services with the use of research evidence.

Our research-focused accelerator bridges the gaps between EdTech designers and developers, researchers in education and EdTech, and users, to ensure that EdTech products live up to their promises.

EDUCATE 2.0 also provides support to SMEs to help them increase their R&D investment and provide an opportunity for researchers to commercialise their research. 

The EDUCATE Programme envisions an EdTech ecosystem that is populated by research-minded enterprises, building excellent, evidence-informed learning tools to empower human intelligence, revolutionise how teachers teach, and students learn – and to ensure that London, and the UK continues to lead the way in EdTech globally.
