Strong Growth Despite Market Challenges

ApplyBoard Co-Founder and CEO Martin Basiri is honoured to accept this award on behalf of the team and congratulates the other inspiring tech companies also featured on the lists.

“The pandemic has been difficult for international studies and decreased the market by as much as 70%, but despite these challenges, we still managed to demonstrate strong growth,” explained Basiri. “We would not have been able to achieve this without the hard work of our ApplyBoard team members worldwide and the support of partner schools, recruitment partners, students, and investors.”

Basiri credits the team’s steadfast commitment to improving global access to education combined with the ApplyBoard Platform’s AI-powered technology, which attracts over 1,500 partner schools and more than 10,000 recruitment partners. Since 2015, ApplyBoard has helped over 250,000 students around the world with their study abroad journeys. 

“ApplyBoard’s offerings are uniquely designed to revolutionize the application process for international students and change lives for the better,” said Basiri. “We’re continuously evolving our offerings so that we can eliminate obstacles in international education and serve our customers better.”
