The Qatar Foundation is calling on social entrepreneurs who are looking to change the future of education to apply for the latest intake of Wise Accelerator initiative.

Wise has supported 32 EdTech ventures from 18 countries through its accelerator programme, which gives social entrepreneurs the tailor-made support, expert guidance, and international connections they need to take their educational ventures to the next level.

Through linking young entrepreneurs with a global network of education stakeholders, whose insights they can tap into, the Wise Accelerator aims to help them overcome challenges that can stand in the way of them developing and expanding their ventures.

During their year in the programme, the startups who form the annual cohorts have the opportunity to attend international events and benefit from access to networking opportunities with potential new partners and investors.

Successful applicants who join the programme also become part of a community of innovators and mentors who are experts in the field of education.

The submission period for the Wise Accelerator’s 2020-21 edition closes at 4pm GMT on 20 April 2020. Applications will be judged by the programme team alongside experts in education and social entrepreneurship, with the initiatives selected to be part of its next cohort being announced in September 2020. To apply, visit www.wise-qatar.org/wise-accelerator.
