The language-free math edtech has been selected as one of 75 finalists in MIT’s Solve Challenge. Votes are open until 17 September.
Magrid continues its impressive form this year. Having won the European Creative Young Entrepreneur at the Junior Chamber International (JCI) 2022 European Conference and entered the JCI world congress finals in October, the edtech is now hoping to be selected as one of the 40 winners of MIT’s Solve Challenge.
Nominated as a finalist in the “Re-engaging learners” category, the edtech is competing with 15 other finalists for $2,000, 9 months of personalized support and access to funding in grants and investments.
“We are pleased to have our efforts towards equality in education recognized by such a prestigious organization, as well as seeing the strides that the other finalists are taking to help achieve this goal,” said the Magrid team in a press statement.
The only Luxembourgish startup selected, Magrid’s founder and CEO Tahereh Pazouki is now in NY where the finals will take place later this week. To learn more about the competing startups and to cast your vote of support, check here. Voting closes 17 September 12:00pm ET.
