DENVER, Jan. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — InScribe Education (InScribe), which delivers game-changing digital community solutions, has been selected to The Elite 200, the acclaimed list of semifinalists in The GSV Cup, the world’s largest pitch competition for EdTech startups run by female-led, multi-stage venture capital firm GSV Ventures. Companies selected to The Elite 200 represent the top pre-seed and seed-stage startups in digital learning across the “Pre-K to Gray” space. InScribe will have the opportunity to compete for up to $1M in cash and prizes in San Diego this April at the ASU+GSV Summit, the annual education technology event hosted by Arizona State University and GSV Ventures.
InScribe was selected from a global applicant pool of 750+ companies, the largest application pool for the GSV Cup yet. More than 175 judges from leading venture capital firms and strategic partners in digital learning like Accel, General Atlantic, Reach Capital, and Owl Ventures, among others, used rigorous criteria to determine the 200 most promising companies.
“At InScribe, we believe in the power of community to give every student the knowledge and confidence they need to thrive. We are thrilled to have our work recognized by GSV Ventures and the incredible team of judges for this year’s GSV Cup, and to stand alongside the other Elite 200 companies who share our vision for equitable access to quality education for all learners,” said Katy Kappler, Co-Founder and CEO of InScribe.
“We’re at a critical and exciting time for the future of society,” said Deborah Quazzo, managing partner of GSV Ventures. “The pandemic has made it increasingly clear that Ed is on The Edge — on the edge of innovation, transformation, globalization. We’ve always imagined a new era in which ALL people have equal access to the future, and this year’s Elite 200 companies are emblematic of that vision. We’re proud to name the 200 semifinalists in the GSV Cup competition and look forward to having them pitch live at the ASU+GSV Summit.”
The Elite 200 companies serve learners from Pre-K to Gray, with companies well-distributed across the following categories: Early Childhood, K-12, Higher Education, Adult Consumer Learning, and Adult Enterprise Learning.
