UnLearn Launches an Accelerator Program to Drive US-Asia Network for Learning and Talent Innovation

UnLearn, a leading Hong Kong-based innovation platform driving early- and growth-stage learning technology and talent development ventures, today announced the launch of The UnLearn Innovator Program. The groundbreaking initiative will promote trans-pacific technology ventures focused on human capital development. UnLearn has partnered with GSVlabs, a global innovation center based in Silicon Valley, to launch the program.

It is the first cross-border accelerator program focused on learning solutions and workforce development technology, connecting the Hong Kong and Asia region with a Silicon Valley partner. It will combine UnLearn’s expertise and network with the GSVlabs platform, which accelerates startups and connects corporations to exponential technologies, business models, and entrepreneurs.

The UnLearn Innovator Program is a 3-month program designed to help early-stage entrepreneurs develop, execute, and scale their businesses. It will include marketing services, geographic expansion opportunities, and network benefits for entrepreneurs on both sides of the Pacific.

Key highlights of the program include:

- Access to an extensive network of mentors and investors from Asia and Silicon Valley;
- Fundraising opportunities at exclusive investor and Demo Day events in Hong Kong and Silicon Valley;
- Connection to essential service providers for marketing, product development, and business services;
- Introduction to potential distributors and corporate partners in Asia;
- Intensive bootcamp at GSVlabs to get immersed into the Silicon Valley ecosystem and build a lifelong network of fellow learning and talent technology entrepreneurs and mentors.

Additional program details will be announced in the coming weeks. The inaugural cohort will be opened to entrepreneurs and innovators around the globe. The program is currently scheduled to launch in mid-2017.
