StudySmarter Wins the Telekom Edtec Startup Award 2018 in Gold!
The Telekom EdTec Startup Award was presented for the first time in 2018 to search for and reward companies, products, and services that have the best ideas for innovation in education and science. Partners in the event were the Leipzig Institute for Education and Science Management (IBWM), the Leipzig University of Applied Sciences (HfTL), the Hochschulforum Digitalisierung, and the EdTec Lab of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).
The award is designed to honour innovative startups from the DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) that capitalise on digital technologies to digitise and advance education and science. The award took place at the Digital Academic Summit in Leipzig in September 2018.
We are very proud to announce that StudySmarter was awarded first place in the final pitch! An independent jury and an audience (made up of representatives from universities and respected companies) voted to determine the overall winner. We’d also like to congratulate silver and bronze winners, Storyplanet and Brainimals.
