Due to this, xEdu have nominated Nano Simbox as one of three start-ups for a Global Super League of Startups Pitch Competition, which showcases 15 of the most promising startups from all over the world. The winner will be offered meetings with each of the six international judges – and the potential to expand into new international markets.

Speaking of Nano Simbox’s xEdu journey to pitching, Dr Becky Sage commented “We are very proud to have been selected by xEdu to be presenting our product in the Global Super League of Startups session. The last few months have been a pivotal time for our company. Being part of the xEdu accelerator has been instrumental to integrating world class pedagogy and design into our Minimum Sellable Product, ready for release July 2017. Co-creating with innovative schools in Finland allowed us to ensure education and pedagogy were the key drivers, which, when combined with “wow-factor” technology have enabled our ground breaking product to be realised.”

As Nano Simbox look ahead to expansion into international markets, the company is looking for educators, investors and media to connect with at EdTechxEurope.  Please contact:
