The Sky High EdTech Rolling Accelerator focuses on the unique needs of EdTech startups, combining our lean startup methodology with an intense social innovation curriculum. Memphis is ground zero for disruptive startups in the areas of education due to our 48% child poverty rates and tremendous digital divide. A big part of the programming is centered around access to funders of schools and the schools themselves for better customer discovery and shortened sales cycles.
With a network of VCs and angels, we help startups gain access to investment partners with a special interest in social enterprises. Graduates of Sky High have secured over $6.5 million in additional funding via our Validation Fund, Angel Network, and other Foundations.
