A new accelerator launched today with the goal of providing support for the creation and growth of education technology and learning companies in New England.

Boston, MA-based LearnLaunchX will provide selected start-ups with early seed funding, access to learning marketplace leaders and channels, and mentoring by experts. Entrepreneurs will receive guidance and strategic direction on a full range of issues, from product feature decisions and beta testing to management team development and market entry in the learning industry.

Co-founded by Jean Hammond, Mark Miller, Vinit Nijhawan, Eileen Rudden, and Hakan Satiroglu, LearnLaunchX will invest in an estimated 40 companies across five cohorts in the first three years of its accelerator program.

LearnLaunchX will open applications for its first cohort on Feb 20th. The first session will begin in June 2013.
