Global EdTech 1000

HolonIQ's annual list of the most promising EdTech startups around the world.

Every year, HolonIQ’s Education Intelligence Unit identifies the top 1000 EdTech startups around the world. The global 1000 is built region by region from over 10,000 nominations, applications and screening to ensure the global cohort is diverse and to shine a light on the inspiring innovation happening all around the world.

Applications for the 2023 Global EdTech 1000 are now open.

Regional lists of HolonIQ's 2022 Global EdTech 1000 were announced at our Global Impact Summits around the world, September to November 2022. You can check out the individual impact maps for the 2020, 2021 and 2022 cohorts across the Global EdTech 1000 below, and follow these links to explore the market maps for Global Climate Tech 1000 and Global Digital Health 1000.

The purpose of the Global EdTech 1000 is to identify the most promising, young, fast-growing and innovative learning and upskilling startups in each major region of the world. To be eligible, startups must be less than 10 years old, are headquartered in the region in question, or predominantly focused on that market (e.g. > 80% revenue/customers). They must also be ‘startups’ (‘pre-exit’, i.e. not acquired, a subsidiary or listed) and not controlled by an investor group (e.g. via private equity buyout or controlling investment).

The HolonIQ Education Intelligence Unit and select market experts assess each organization based on HolonIQ’s startup scoring rubric, which in brief covers the following dimensions:

Market. The quality and relative attractiveness of the specific market category in which the company competes.

Product. The quality, uniqueness and impact of the product itself.

Team. The expertise and diversity of the leadership team.

Capital. The financial health of the company and its ability to generate or secure sufficient funding.

Momentum. Positive changes in the size, velocity and impact of the company over time.
