(March 7, 2022) — PathMatch has been selected to the 2023 Top 20, the acclaimed list of finalists in The GSV Cup—the world’s largest pitch competition for startups within the digital learning and workforce skills sector—at the 14th Annual ASU+GSV Summit. This is the second time that PathMatch has been voted into the finals.
Companies selected to The Top 20 represent the top pre-seed and seed-stage startups in digital learning across the “Pre-K to Gray” space. PathMatch will now compete for up to $1M in cash and prizes in San Diego this April at the ASU+GSV Summit, the annual education technology event hosted by Arizona State University and GSV Ventures.
PathMatch was selected from a record-breaking pool of 900+ applicants from more than 69 countries which was further narrowed to The Elite 200 semifinalists. Using the "Five P's" framework (People, Product, Potential, Predictability, and Purpose), this year's Top 20 most promising companies were rigorously evaluated and selected by an esteemed panel of 200+ judges from leading venture capital firms and strategic partners in digital learning. Watch PathMatch compete on Stage X at ASU+GSV 2023 live in San Diego or virtually via the Virtual Summit live stream!
“We are thrilled to be a finalist with so many other amazing tech companies,” says Nancy Soni, CEO of PathMatch. “It’s incredible to see that our mission to help today’s students navigate tomorrow’s workforce has resonated with so many investors and business leaders. We’re excited to compete and pitch PathMatch on stage.
The Top 20 companies serve learners from Pre-K to Gray, with companies well-distributed across the following categories: Early Childhood, K-12, Higher Education, Adult Consumer Learning, and Adult Enterprise Learning.
