The Iowa EdTech Collaborative is a network of internationally-known education companies, successful EdTech startups, academic and education stakeholders, and economic development leaders who are working collectively to grow human-centered lifelong learning in the State of Iowa. 


Together, we're building on Iowa's existing base of larger in-state companies and notable research-and-development assets at area universities to encourage technology advancements and create jobs in the thriving and dynamic EdTech sector.

The Iowa EdTech Collaborative has identified four focus areas that will help our state facilitate growth within the EdTech sector: collaboration facilitation and cluster networking, enhancing Iowa’s piloting and adoption environment, entrepreneurial ecosystem development and workforce development and access. By working collaboratively with the EdTech industry, academic, state, and education delivery stakeholders, our Collaborative sees the potential for a long-term impact as a result of investing in EdTech and facilitating its growth.



 “By developing an ecosystem that supports and nurtures innovative EdTech companies, Iowa can simultaneously grow our economy while improving the lives of millions of learners all across the world.”
