Uptale will represent France for the final of the Global EdTech Startup Awards. This Thursday, December 6, we won the French final alongside two promising startups: Klassroom (2nd) and Wakatoon (3rd). This final provides us the opportunity to gain a presence on the French Pavilion at BETT in London (from January 23 to 26 2019) and on EduSpot France at the Palais des Congrès in Lyon, France (April 2, 3 and 4 2019).
The Global EdTech Startup Awards are the largest competition in the world for EdTech startups. Initiated by MindCET (Israel), GESA was co-founded by Open Education Challenge (EU) and EdTech UK in 2014. We want to thank the organizers of the French Contest: ED21, Afinef, 110bis, Edtech France, Schoolab, MinCET and CENE.
More than 2000 startups applied to compete to present their innovations and try to win the title of the most promising EdTech start-up of the year!
The criteria on which the jury evaluates startups are: addressing a clear problem; relevance to the market; providing an innovative pedagogical approach; having an exceptional user experience; showing the considerable growth potential of their user base; and operating in the context of a sustainable mode of operation.

We were honored to participate in this final alongside our friends Wakatoon and Klassroom, promising finalists who deserve to be highlighted! ?
Wakatoon is the first coloring book that turns into a cartoon. After coloring the drawings in the Wakatoon book, just take a picture and, thanks to the mobile application, the drawing comes alive and the story comes to life.
Klassroom is a mobile and web application that reinvents communication between parents and teachers by making it simple, instant and secure.
