StudyPortals wins EdTechXGlobal Growth Awards
StudyPortals is humbled to receive the EdTechXGlobal All Stars Growth Award for showing the most revenue growth momentum over the past three years among the world’s super-performing education technology companies!
The award marks an important milestone in our global expansion over the past years, and signal that StudyPortals is on the right path towards truly fulfilling its goal of making education choice transparent, globally.
The awards were revealed on 16 June during the EdTechXEurope summit in London, which gives education experts a platform to share their insights on the rich opportunities the edtech sector has to offer. StudyPortals was awarded the Growth award alongside Abintegro and Life is Tech!
Joran van Aart, COO, was present to receive the award:
“StudyPortals was born out of a desire to help everyone who has ever dreamt of studying abroad to follow their dreams and support them in this complex process. Choosing a study is a very personal decision, and we want to challenge students to find the study that best matches their wants and desires, wherever that might be in the world.”
Edwin van Rest, CEO:
“It’s truly an honor to receive such an amazing award, and the timing couldn’t have been better. We’ve already started strengthening our presence in North America, and are soon moving our Eindhoven-based HQ to a new office that can accommodate our future growth plans. We have no intention of slowing down our growth since we have such an important mission: empowering the world to choose education.”
For the past four years, the EdTechEurope summit has grown exponentially and provided an important platform for decision makers, innovators, educators, and investors to share insights and hear first-hand from experts who have embraced the power of technology in education.
The summit also allowed us to meet co-founders Benjamin Vedrenne-Cloquet and Charles McIntyre, along with over 150 expert speakers including the likes of Jonathan Rochelle of Google, Satya Nitta at IBM Watson, Charles Hardy from LinkedIn and Sir Robert Winston, Imperial College, who discussed these and other emerging trends set to impact the sector over the next 12 months and beyond.
