The summit works towards a common goal of ensuring equal access to the future for all.
Commenting on the achievement, Mr. Shailendra Dhakad, Co-Founder, Codeyoung, said, “We at Codeyoung are extremely proud and delighted in qualifying as the only Indian Startup in the GSV Cup Top 25. ASU+GSV Summit is an international platform that brings educators, investors, industry pioneers, and entrepreneurs under one roof to exchange quantitative insights and research with the global community. On a platform like this, there are startups worldwide who compete to make it to the top. Like others, we also underwent the review process, which involved considering the Five P’s- “People, Product, Potential, Predictability, and Purpose”. Also in a recent declaration, there were a total of 15 Indian edtech startups in the Elite 200, and we were one of the competing startups in the semi-finals.”
“We aim to reach every global platform through the kind of work we are delivering in education and are also planning to expand strategically to multiple nations in the coming years. We are currently operating in 10+ countries with over 20k active students”, he further added.
