During COVID, we've focused on leveraging unprecedented challenges to encourage transformative changes in education. As a part of that, we organized the 2020 Tools Competition for Schmidt Futures and Citadel Founder and CEO Ken Griffin to solicit proposals from individuals around the globe to submit innovative edtech tools that could accelerate learning. We received just under 900 proposals and named 18 winners. The winners are projected to impact 20 million students globally in the next three years.
We supported all participants, not just the winners, to develop their ideas and provided in-kind support and feedback.
This year, we are hosting the competition again, but now with more sponsors and a larger prize purse of $4 million USD.
