University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education and the Milken Family Foundation name Digitability as a winner at the 2013 Education Business Plan Competition.
In its fourth year, the Education Business Plan Competition attracts innovative ideas from around the world – with three previous finalists landing spots on Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30” list of Gen-Y thought leaders who are reinventing education in 2013. Additionally, yesterday 2012 winner Jason Young of Mindblown Labs was named by American Express and Ashoka Changemakers® as a top innovator in the U.S., Canada and Mexico while attending the Competition.
