AT&T is putting out a call for applicants to join the 2016 class of its Aspire Accelerator.
The Aspire Accelerator is a mentorship and investment program specifically for edtech startups — selected startups get access to the expertise and platform of the Aspire network and $100,000 in investment from AT&T, all in return for “up to” 5 percent equity.
The accelerator is open to both for-profit and non-profit companies that:

  • Have a product or service that uses tech to support education,
  • Have a MVP and some proof of product/market fit,
  • And have at least one technical cofounder.

D.C.-based EduCanon (which in some places seems to be rebranding as PlayPosit) was a member of the 2015 Aspire class, and AT&T is hoping to attract some more D.C. tech talent in this application round.

Sound interesting? You can apply now until Feb. 5.
