We create educational startups in the intersect of

incubation and company building


Passion for education

Our Model

What began as collaboration between startups created by Simetrica Labs and Inter Education Ventures, resulted in the design of an INNcubation™ program to support Latin American educational startups.


Based out of Bogotá, Colombia; three to four startups a year will receive between $40K and $100K in exchange of equity to consolidate a customer discovery and development process during a 12 month period following lean startup principles.


InncubatED has a strong trajectory developing educational startups and a  highly efficient sales channel developed by its founders during more than 10 years of work in the education sector in Latin America.

Working in the intersect of a company builder and a traditional incubator, we conduct extensive research to identify high potential segments in the educational market as well as problems worth solving.


We then select startups that are developing business models that fit into the market/product spaces we have pre-defined. If a close match is not found, we seek for startups that can easily be "moved" into the space. If none of the previous can be found, we simply build it ourselves and look for talented entrepreneurs to take over the venture.








Company building & incubation

We don't accelerate startups in batches, instead we build one or two every year with talented entrepreneurs that join us for the ride and make them their own.

We have a vertical approach and concentrate exclusively on Education. This gives us the added advantage of exploiting  synergies and our sectoral expertise.

We follow lean startup principles to which we add specific educational product development best practices.
