Arizona State University (ASU) recently partnered with Global Silicon Valley (GSV) and Draper Associates to pilot a new program that will allow education technology companies to test out their projects with a real university.
The ASU Draper GSV Accelerator will test startup education services and products with ASU staff, students, and administrators. Project officials projected that after a successful trial period, participating companies will be certified as market ready, and be able to shop their services to other schools with their real-world test cases to support their pitch.
The ASU Draper GSV Accelerator plans to host five companies by August. Campus Logic, which offers a cloud-based platform to streamline student financial aid, is the first.
