On September 20, Chief Strategy Officer of BeED, Vladislav Herchykau, represented the company in the Scandinavian semi-finals of the Global EdTech Startup Awards, where 9 brilliant pre-selected startups competed for the road to the finals in BETT London.
This time, along with the GESAwards competition moderated by a panel of judges, there was also a parallel award judged by public vote which provided the opportunity for the winner to present their startup at DigiEduHack Hackathon.
The GESA public winner was chosen by the audience via online voting, where each startup was anonymously described based on its solution. BeED is proud to have captured the public vote, catching the attention of EdTech and pedagogy experts who were invited to the event.
The Global EdTech Startup Awards is the world’s largest EdTech Startup competition co-founded by MindCET, Open Education Challenge (EU) and EdTech UK in 2014. This year, GESAwards Scandinavia was hosted by Dare to Learn in Helsinki and attracted startups from Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.
