I am excited to announce that EdCast has been selected to join World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers Class of 2020. For the last twenty years, WEF has selected a handful of the world’s most innovative companies to receive this prestigious honor, including Google, Airbnb, Palantir Technologies, Spotify, TransferWise and Twitter. I am quite thankful to WEF for selecting us this year. Please see the press release announcing this here.

EdCast is pleased to join this community, which has included Google, Airbnb, Twitter, Spotify, Dropbox, Impossible Foods and Palantir Technologies. As part of this honor, I am proud to have the opportunity to engage with the Forum’s multi-stakeholder community over the next two years.

The world is undergoing major changes, including digital transformation and major shifts to remote work that are driving urgency behind reskilling and upskilling efforts. Working within this context, I will seek to represent and influence the public and private sector decision-makers who engage with the Forum’s global community to ensure all who want and need new skills can do so. On behalf of EdCast, I will contribute new ideas, perspectives and innovations that help to bring to bear a stronger, more resilient future.

It is a critical moment for innovative companies like ours to bring forward new ideas and innovations to enhance the lives and livelihoods of communities around the world. For these reasons, I am excited EdCast was selected for this honor and grateful for our employees, customers and partners who helped make this possible. I look forward to working with WEF and my fellow TechPioneers.
