This Wednesday, October 22, Story to College participated in Kaplan’s 2nd annual TechStars Demo Day, located at ArtBeam in Chelsea, New York City.

Demo Day featured speeches by Kaplan CEO Tom Leppert and TechStars Managing Director Don Burton as well as the presentations by the 11 EdTech startups participating in the program. Burton described EdTech Accelerator programs, such as TechStars, as the Harvard Business School equivalent for education start-ups.

In just short 12 weeks, we gained immeasurable knowledge and experience from TechStars' hands-on approach, mentoring opportunities, and focus on product development and were able to launch Story2, an interactive, online essay writing platform that has already reached 10,000 students working on their application essays this fall. And we’re excited for what’s next!
