Slogan Viling Ventures Eduvation Accelerator Program

 ※Eduvation = Education × Technology × Innovation

The goal of this program is to seed promising startups with passion to make new markets and change markets significantly in the education field. For a 3-month period, the accepted startups are given access to a wide support network for entrepreneurs and paired with mentors with experience and expertise in related fields.

On the last day of the program we organize a Demo Day, at which startups get an opportunity to pitch to angel investors, venture capitals, education companies, and people involved in education. Before the Demo Day, startups may also receive investment offer from Viling Venture Partners.

We support leaders who make difference in education with our three distinctive characteristics. ① Specializing in education area ② Trying to administer school with own foundation ③ Investing in startups without maturity date.

Next application starts in summer 2015
Next program starts from September 2015 to March 2016
