Yesterday I participated in my first-ever venture pitch… and won!
I was thrilled to be included in the EdTech Venture Day organized by IE University and EAB. The jury selected Next Knowledge from among five finalists.
The EdTech Venture Day is a virtual event aimed at innovative start-ups and SMEs that can provide solutions to create an effective educational environment, and reactivate education for all students and stakeholders in the educational sector. I was very impressed by the innovations of my fellow presenters representing companies from around the world.
This is an incredibly exciting moment for our company. Our team has worked hard and these are early days for our venture -- to receive this type of honour and validation at this stage of our development is incredibly gratifying.
As the winning start-up, we will have the chance to pitch on IE's stage during South Summit this October in Madrid, Spain. Our team will also participate in an acceleration program in order to springboard to the next round. Incredible opportunities!
We’re just getting started and the future looks bright! I’m excited for our team… and elated that this might fast-track our ability to help even more learners... and soon!
