Our team at ClassTag was met with a huge honor last week when we were announced to be the winner of the Global EdTech Startup Awards (GESA) for 2018. GESA is an initiative led by a group of leading education innovation organizations from across the world. Last week LearnLaunch Accelerator hosted the US East Coast and Canada semi-finals of the 5th year of the Global EdTech Startup Awards. The Awards identify, showcase and recognize the world’s most promising EdTech startups for 2018.
