Towson University + EdTech
Towson University is Maryland’s top producer of teachers and is noted for its excellence in teacher preparation and education. In this light, TU is constantly working to enhance the educational experience, including ways to integrate technological advancements. TU Incubator leverages TU’s resources and reputation in education to help edtech companies succeed.
TU Incubator also utilizes the real world experience of Frank Bonsal III, TU’s Director of Entrepreneurship. Frank is a pioneer in edtech who uses his past experiences as an educator, coach, and venture capitalist to coach member companies. With Frank’s guidance, TU Incubator is a proponent of an education innovation ecosystem known as Baltimore EdTech (#BmoreEdTech).
Baltimore first emerged as an EdTech hub during the 1990s. Today, with a stronger network of investors, educators, and entrepreneurs, Charm City is re-emerging as an EdTech hub. TU Incubator and its member companies are part of that growth.
