Last year's winner
Conexus Learning Management System
Education

In 2016, Melissa Tafila won the prize in Botswana with her Conexus business, an online platform that connects relevant education stakeholders such as teachers, tutors, parents, students and regulatory bodies. For students and educators the platform acts as a content aggregator whereby relevant and quality learning material is sourced from qualified educators and matched to students in need of such material, based on factors such as weakness areas, study plan progression and areas of interest. The platform enables easy publication of content (Videos, Apps, Lesson plans, books) and relieves educators of the burden of finding a market for their products. Quality learning material will trickle down to all students despite their family’s financial background.
