Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Jacobs Foundation, and UK Aid, EdTech Hub invites applications for the EdTech Evidence for Entrepreneurs and Innovators in England in 2022.

The EdTech Evidence for Entrepreneurs course is for Africa-based EdTech innovators and entrepreneurs who want to ensure their EdTech products use the best available evidence for how to improve teaching and learning outcomes.

We often hear from people developing EdTech products that they want to bring more research on teaching and learning to their product’s design, and they are eager to demonstrate how their product builds on the best available evidence. But they’re not quite sure where to start. This course aims to fill that need.


The course is intended to help you improve your EdTech product by offering practical, evidence-based lessons from fellow entrepreneurs , industry experts, and education leaders.
