Some great news to start the week with. For the second year in a row CourseDot is among the top 20 EdTech companies in the 2017 EdTechXGlobal Awards.
Last year, CourseDot was among the top 20 rising EdTech companies globally. This year, we have been honored to be among the 20 finalists across the EdTechXGlobal Growth and Rise Awards categories – honoring a selection of the most innovative, fastest growing start-ups.
Continuing our sustained growth is a big challenge. It wouldn’t have been possible without the tremendous help and support from our investors, partners and clients. Everyone’s feedback has been invaluable to us and we want to thank you all. There’s a lot more to come on the road to helping make IT trainings even more accessible to everyone. We look forward to our continued cooperation with current and new investors, partners and clients.
And also, big congrats to the 19 other companies and the six winners. It shows the enormous potential of the EdTech sector and how important it is for the industry and its future.
