Enhancing EdTech. Improving Learning.

EDUCATE is the leading research and business training programme for EdTech startups in London. Housed within the UCL Institute of Education, the programme promotes excellence in EdTech by connecting the EdTech community to the world’s best educational research and practice. Part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and in partnership with UCL Engineering, BESAF6S and Nesta, we are using our academic and business know-how to bring EdTech products to life. Our pioneering approach aims to build and develop world-class EdTech products and services based on what works for teachers and learners.

It is this focus on pedagogical research and ‘what works’ that makes our programme stand out. Entrepreneurs and innovators can be confident that access to reputable evidence will assist them in developing world-class products and services that are effective and marketable, and fit for purpose.

Since our launch in 2017, we have seen over 100 EdTech startups successfully complete the programme, with many going on to gain additional investment, building their networks and partnerships, and vastly enhancing the effectiveness and credibility of their products.
