Nexford University was announced as one of the Elite 200 companies who will compete in the GSV Cup and will present at the 2020 ASU GSV Summit. The ASU GSV Summit is one of the biggest education and talent technology events of the year and gathers leaders in government, education, and work advancing social and economic mobility by bending the arc of human potential through innovation.

Three companies will be chosen as finalists during the Summit, receiving a prize package of $250,000 in cash and $100,000 in Google Cloud credits.

“We’re thrilled to top the list of finalists. Nexford is born different: a tech startup with all the credentials of a university. The challenges that we’re solving have been debated for a decade. We can’t wait to bring our story to the stage in San Diego in March,” said Fadl Al Tarzi, Founder and CEO, Nexford University.

Nexford is the only university that has tailored its prices to the market of each country. It is also the only competitor with a mission that encompasses economic mobility. Its mission is to enable greater social and economic mobility across the world by providing learners access to high-quality, affordable, dynamic online education that prepares them for the global workplace.

The GSV Cup is a unique cross-sector competition – spanning “pre-K to gray” sectors, including technologies in corporate learning and talent management, workforce analytics, early childhood, K-12, higher education and postsecondary education. The Elite 200 represent 21 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, North America, and South America.

The 2020 ASU GSV Summit will be held from March 30 to April 1 in San Diego. The 2019 Summit drew 5,000 attendees from over 45 countries, including more than 300 investors representing $7+ trillion of capital.
