Washington DC, March 2nd, 2023:
University Startups is an education technology company that empowers students with the tools they need to start a business, attend college, or find a job using proprietary instructional courses and innovative technologies.
The company was selected to present at the New York City Techstars Investor Spotlight held at J.P. Morgan Headquarters on January 17th, 2023.
In front of hundreds of investors, Co-CEO Marc Steren outlined the company's plan to deliver positive impact to school systems across the country using the University Startups SaaS platform in 3 key areas; college preparation, workforce readiness, and social entrepreneurship. “Our goal is to reach 3 million students, and this goal is both achievable and necessary to transform the lives of students and communities across the country,” said Steren.
University Startups was one of a very select group of companies that participated in the inaugural Techstars Washington DC powered by J.P. Morgan Accelerator tied to a new $80M fund raised through the J.P. Morgan Private Bank, with a particular focus on diverse entrepreneurs traditionally undervalued and overlooked by other venture capital sources.
