EdTech start-up Polymath one of only two NZ companies selected for Startmate’s 2023 Summer Accelerator

Exciting news!

Polymath, an EdTech start-up from Auckland, is one of only two New Zealand companies selected as one of 12 tech-driven start-ups for Startmate’s 2023 Summer Accelerator. This accelerator awards $120,000 in capital to help founders across Australia and New Zealand propel their early-stage ventures. The 12-week program consists of a mix of sessions, ranging from cohort check-ins to one-on-one mentor sessions, helping founders set up short-term goals in addition to mapping out a year-long plan. Participating start-ups will receive $120,000 at a $1.5 million valuation if founders have not raised capital prior to being accepted into the program. For founders that have raised before, the accelerator matches the latest valuation.

Congratulations to Polymath and its founders, Sophie Silver and Christian (Krinn) Silver, for being selected.
