In August 2020, HolonIQ announced our first annual Russia & CIS EdTech 100 — a list of the 100 most innovative education technology companies in Russia and CIS countries.
The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) is a regional intergovernmental organisation formed in 1991, composed of Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Ukraine.
The region is recognised for deep tech leadership and the ecosystem of education & training for technology learning, from early years STEM, Coding and Robotics, through to tech upskilling in the workforce and new applications of virtual, augmented and simulated reality, illustrates the strong support for technology in learning across the region.
Language Learning, Tutoring, Test Prep and Online Higher Education are also well represented and become key to global reach and growth.
