We, at xEdu, are extremely excited to kick off our fifth acceleration program today. After receiving almost 100 applications from 30 countries around the globe, we have carefully selected the top 10 startups that will transform education as we know it.
The top-notch teams that innovate in the experiential, collaborative and game-based learning will start their 4-month learning journey with the best coaches in their fields. The program is built around the strong ecosystem that we have created with our partners.
