From our friend Matt in NOLA:
What is the 4.0 Launch Accelerator?
The 4.0 Schools Accelerator Program is designed for the early stage entrepreneur who believes they have uncovered a pain point in education and wants to build a new organization or internal venture through their existing organization to solve it. Currently, the accelerator is offered in two tracks; the part-time virtual accelerator and full-time accelerator.
The accelerator is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to develop their ideas to change education into a nascent business through rapid prototyping, check-ins with staff, and access to the greater 4.0 network of mentors. Entrepreneurs can expect to accelerate their business and be pushed by strategic coaching.
The application for our upcoming Virtual Accelerator has a deadline of March 13, 2013. It is not necessary for entrepreneurs be located in New Orleans for this program.
