AgentPiggy, a startup focusing on financial education for children, and zuggi, a safe search engine for kids, have been selected to participate in Empact 100 and, like their peers, Babelverse, have been selected out of hundreds and hundreds of competing startups.
The Empact 100 is a compilation of top companies run by young entrepreneurs whose ranking recognizes the top 100 companies run by entrepreneurs who are under 30 years of age and who impact the world’s economy while inspiring others to join the movement to start a business of their own. AgentPiggy’s founders Pablo Ambram and Maritza Lanas, along with zuggi’s founder, Natália Monteiro, will attend the recognition event in Washington DC, at the White House with senior administration officials from the US Government.
Hand-in-hand with the Empact 100 honors, they have been chosen to participate in the Future of Entrepreneurship Education Summit, the world’s largest, invite-only event that convenes top leaders from different sectors of the entrepreneurship ecosystem (government, foundations, education, corporations, media, entrepreneur support organizations, and entrepreneurs). According to the organization, “the vision of the Summit is to help make entrepreneurship a viable career pathway, and in so doing, help solve the jobs crisis.”
