Amazing things Ashantha's made
StartEd exists to advance the army of education and media innovators solving the world’s largest problems in education. StartEd does so by creating courses, accelerators and innovation festivals for organizations aiming to be the catalyst for their education innovation ecosystem.

Our Accelerator is a week-long intensive for the most innovative media, EdTech and workforce startups to refine their companies in mentor-driven programs by granting access to the best of New York City, the Bay Area, and Los Angeles — connections, customers, capital, and culture. Our festival, EDTECH WEEK, is a must-attend event for 1300+ leaders of the edtech and workforce communities. The event attracts technology innovators, early-stage investors, entrepreneurs, policymakers, media representatives, researchers, and educators to foster new partnerships and exchange best practices.
