Oct 14, 2020 | Awards, Education

Global edtech company Snapplify has been selected from 700+ organisations for the HolonIQ EdTech 50. Compiled by global market intelligence firm HolonIQ, the annual list recognises the 50 most innovative and impactful edtech startups across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Organisations were assessed according to market quality and potential, competitive landscape, product and impact, team expertise and diversity, capital, sustainability and momentum. Snapplify’s inclusion in the HolonIQ EdTech 50 is indicative of the company’s traction, market fit and value-driven ethos.

Snapplify was commended specifically for providing access to learning and literacy tools. This has long been a core focus for the edtech company, whose work to lower barriers to entry has made digital education possible for thousands of educational institutions across Africa.

Most recently, in response to school closures as a result of the Covid-19 crisis, the Snapplify Free Access programme has provided millions of US dollars’ worth of free e-textbooks to students since April 2020. Snapplify Free Access has been widely regarded as the single largest education intervention carried out in response to COVID-19 in Africa.

Snapplify’s recent partnership with Scholastic has further empowered teachers and students to create rewarding reading experiences using Scholastic Literacy Pro’s assessment tools and Snapplify’s vast content catalogue, thereby improving literacy levels.

‘Being selected as one of the top 50 education technology startups in Africa is a real highlight for our team,’ said Snapplify’s CEO, Wesley Lynch. ‘Our desire to increase access to quality education for all is what underpins all the work we do, so we are particularly proud to be associated with HolonIQ who are doing incredible work to support innovation with insights into the global education market.’
