Education ventures finish LEANLAB accelerator, collect funding

Six education entrepreneurs completed their stint as fellows in the accelerator program run by Kansas City’s LEANLAB, and four walked away with funding to help them keep building their projects.

The fifth cohort of the education-focused Kansas City accelerator program wrapped up with demonstrations and awards at Launch[ED] Day on Thursday.

Unlike in years past, the finale for this cohort wasn’t a competition. Instead, it was billed as a chance to showcase the startups.

Four of the startups received a share of $60,000. They were:

  • InquirED, an online tool that helps teachers build lessons ($22,000)
  • Base Academy of Music, which focuses on music lessons as a path to social and emotional development ($16,000)
  • Doors to Explore, a tool to connect students to career options in their region ($12,000)
  • Innovare, a software tool to help school leaders with strategic planning ($10,000)

Two other participants, K12 Perform and Words Liive, did not seek grant funding.
