The Jefferson Education Accelerator (JEA), founded by the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education, works to help education companies that have moved past the startup phase to evaluate products and bring them to scale. The goal is to improve student outcomes by offering school districts products based on the best available research.
JEA is partnering with AIR, making it a preferred research and evaluation outlet for the newly-launched education technology venture.
The first company to join JEA is Echo360, an online teaching and learning platform that promotes student engagement before, during, and after class. JEA is expected to select four other companies for the Accelerator this year.
