The xEdu ecosystem once again proves to be a solid part of a global startup scene. Our partner, in-residence company Fuzu and the Spring '17 acceleration program graduate Teacher Gaming Desk have been selected to Disrupt 100, an annual index celebrating the businesses with the most potential to influence, change or create new global markets.
Why is this huge?
Each Disrupt 100 venture was sourced from over 5M global startups and corporate ventures, has been scored against specific criteria measuring the potential it has to affect an existing market or geography, introduce new customers into an existing market and/or creating a new market with significant customer demand.
The ventures were then judged by global brands including Google, Uber, Oracle, Silicon Valley Bank and Virgin StartUp, tech accelerators Microsoft Ventures, Accelerated Digital Ventures and Whitespace Ventures and entrepreneurs Emma Sinclair, Tom Goodwin and Bill Liao.
