Other selected startups are:

  • GotIt!
  • Griti
  • Myriad Sensors

  • Vidcode
  • WriteReader

Redwood City, California-based GSVlabs will house the program’s startups and host coaching events for entrepreneurs.

The Intel Education Accelerator will hold a “pitch day” on Dec. 2 for entrepreneurs to present their educational platforms to potential investors.
