The AWS educational technology (EdTech) startup accelerator, is designed to help entrepreneurs build the next generation of online learning, analytics, and campus management solutions on the AWS Cloud.

Mohammad A. Haque co-founder and SVP of Engineering at eLumin said “AWS has been an amazing partner to eLumin, both in the people we have been working with and the technology that helps to drive our student-centric Desktop as a Service platform. We are excited to join an amazing group of companies whose primary purpose is to solve problems in education.”
“We have a long history of working with Amazon Web Services in education from cloud migrations, strategy and development to support learning in the classroom. The interaction with AWS goes way beyond that of a traditional vendor relationship, they are truly a valued partner in the work that we do” said Greg M. Smith, co-founder and President of eLumin.
As education IT veterans, our founders want all students to thrive beyond the bounds of a traditional campus and the confines of limited resources. We believe that technology should never get in the way of a school’s or a student’s ability to grow and engage with the world. With smart cloud computing, we saw an unmatched opportunity to help make better virtual learning possible for students on the devices they already have, freeing K-12 schools, community colleges, and universities from costly and burdensome software and hardware.
