CampusLogic, a Phoenix-based startup that develops software to help postsecondary institutions and students manage the financial aid process, is the first partner in the ASU Draper GSV Accelerator, which launched recently to help higher-education products and services quickly enter the marketplace.
The new program combines the expertise of Arizona State University, the nation’s largest public university system; GSV, a bullish and prolific venture capital firm that has invested in 64 edtech companies; and Draper Associates, which, in addition to investing, also operates its own “university” to help train aspiring entrepreneurs. The announcement was made at the recent ASU GSV Summit.
The accelerator will run two programs each year, with five to seven startups in each cohort. The program is expecting to accept four more companies to join CampusLogic by Monday, August 1. More details about the program are available at www.edtechaccel.com.
