We will be sharing with the audience how co.lab, a new accelerator based in San Francisco for startups working in the intersection of games and learning, is working with Zynga and the NewSchools Venture Fund to help ed-tech startups. We will go over our model, particularly how we work with Zynga for the benefit of our cohort companies. Particularly we will discuss the value of “vertical accelerators” in a world that does not need just one more incubator! Then we will hear from two entrepreneurs that were part of co.lab’s cohort 1 and how our model helped them. We will then address some of the challenges and opportunities we see in the educational games market.
