144 CEOs from our 2022 Global EdTech 1000 are women. We're celebrating this inspirational cohort and hoping this spotlight inspires action and support for more women entrepreneurs around the world to transform the way we all learn.
Every year, HolonIQ identifies the top 1000 EdTech startups globally. Region by region, we map the most promising EdTech startups, both early and late stage. In 2022, we announced the Africa EdTech 50, Australia and New Zealand EdTech 50, Europe EdTech 200, South Asia EdTech 100, LATAM EdTech 100, Middle East and North Africa EdTech 50, Nordic and Baltic EdTech 50, North America EdTech 200, East Asia EdTech 150 and Southeast Asia EdTech 50. To be eligible, these companies must be startups (i.e. not acquired, controlled or listed), operating in the field of education, learning or training technology, and less than 10 years old.
We’re celebrating the women leading these incredible startups as CEOs or Co-CEOs, and the work they are doing to transform the way the world learns. Through our work at HolonIQ (also co-founded and co-led by a woman CEO), we are determined to play our part in eliminating the gender gap in leadership, entrepreneurship and education.
Despite the progress made in parity for women, there’s still an enormous amount to be done. Our Global State of Women CEOs and Leadership deep dives into the numbers across different industries to highlight the areas making most progress and where much work is still to be done.
