The EduStars 2013 finale is just 10 days away and we’ve been incredibly busy, going through the large number of startup applications that we received. While so much is said about the sorry state of the Indian education system and the low employability of our graduates, what has been really heartening to see is the number of exciting startups that are focusing on this space and trying to make a difference. With a large number of applications and very high competition, it was a tough call to shortlist a few.
Having said that, there were a few companies that really stood out and these companies were invited for one-on-one discussions with Accel Partners. After careful evaluation, we were convinced that one company really led the pack in terms of the traction that they have achieved. Please join us in congratulating Coimbatore-based Focus Academy for Career Enhancement (FACE) as we crown them, EduStar of the month.

With this, we have closed the EduStars application process and are gearing towards the finale on 6 December 2013, at GINSERV, Bangalore. Join us for half-a-day of interesting keynotes, panel discussions and pitches by the 10 EduStars finalists. To check out the agenda and book tickets, click here.
