Business Competition
The Cool Initiatives Education Challenge
Now that was a great start! The Cool Initiatives Education Challenge 2018 was our first business competition, but it won’t be the last – we’re delighted with the level of interest that the competition has generated.
The Grand Final of the competition was held in Lincoln on 18th May 2018.  The six finalists presented their ideas with passion and professionalism and helped to showcase some of the great work that’s going on in the EdTech sector.
Picking winners from such a talented but eclectic bunch proved to be very difficult but the judges were very impressed with this year’s winner, Flash Academy, represented by Veejay Lingiah – Flash Academy is a new platform for schools that supports teachers to deliver learning for pupils that don’t have English as their first language.  The judges felt that Veejay clearly demonstrated the problem - and a solution.  Runner-up was Edval Timetables, represented by Chris Cooper - Edval are the self-proclaimed “Masters of Timetabling” and the judges felt that they could be a really disruptive force in the UK education sector.
