SAN DIEGO, CA, UNITED STATES, August 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Unmudl Public Benefit LLC, the Skills-to-Jobs Marketplace powered by America’s community colleges, has been awarded Global Silicon Valley (GSV) Scholar status, which recognizes the potential of leading transformational education, and technology companies.
Because of the Scholar award, CEO Parminder Jassal and Chief Technology Officer Asad Raza, will join the ASU+GSV Summit, to be held August 9-11 in San Diego. The annual ASU+GSV Summit is a collaboration between Arizona State University (ASU) and Global Silicon Valley (GSV). The event is an industry catalyst for driving scaled innovations of education and skills to ensure all people have equal access to the future.
While at the Summit, Unmudl will compete in a mini-shark tank competition before a panel of chief human resources officers (CHRO) and chief learning officers (CLOs). Unmudl was selected from 90+ submissions by a panel of 25 esteemed judges from global venture capital firms and strategic education companies. The University of Southern California and GSV are running the CLO Shark Tank: Feedback to L&D Start-Ups competition.
“The ASU+GSV Summit is a highly anticipated global event that elevates the educational entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Jassal. “Being a finalist in the CLO shark tank competition is genuinely humbling. We are honored to be included among this fantastic group of finalists.”
In July, Unmudl announced its spin-off from SocialTech.ai, a social technologies incubator based in Austin, Texas.
“As an incubator, SocialTech.ai creates modern technologies to support social processes to nudge human behavior towards a more equitable and sustainable future,” said Jassal. “We’ve been able to grow and develop Unmudl under that umbrella for the last two years, but now is the time to spin Unmudl off as its own organization- providing learners, particularly working learners, with multiple pathways between learning and working.”
