SEK Lab, the SEK Education Group’s education startup accelerator, held the 2022 SEK Lab Awards. At the event edtech startups from Spain and abroad were selected to be part of their eighth program.
The objective of SEK Lab is to support and promote the most innovative initiatives in education and reward entrepreneurs who work to transform society. This edition’s finalist startups joined the forthcoming SEK Lab acceleration program.
Each of the startups met requirements such as having a validated product or service, dedicated full-time team with one to five years’ experience, traction and sales, global ambition, as well as seeking to generate a positive social impact and bring true innovation to the education sector.
At the event held at Camilo José Cela University’s Almagro Campus the entrepreneurs were given five minutes to present their projects to the panel of judges who selected the eleven most innovative and disruptive startups, considering their originality, impact on education, scalability and draw for investors. The ten winning startups of the eighth edition of the SEK Lab Awards were:
