Award Nominations, Digitizing

Lexplore named one of Europe’s top ten most innovative companies for 2019!

Verona, New Jersey (February 20, 2019) — Lexplore is excited to announce that they have been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2019.

The list honours the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s volatile world. Half of the companies on this year’s MIC 50 list are appearing for the first time, including Lexplore, which launched in 2015 in Sweden, the United States in 2017, and the UK in 2018.

“We are so honored to be recognized on Fast Company’s ‘World’s Most Innovative Companies’ list,” said Janine Caffrey, the U.S.-based CEO of Lexplore. “Our team is passionate about finding unique, cutting-edge ways to help students reach their full academic potential, both nationally and abroad, and we are pleased to have been recognized for these efforts.”

Lexplore’s evidence-based technology uses eye tracking and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to determine student reading levels. Through an assessment that takes approximately two minutes per student, teachers can accurately and objectively assess student reading levels with 98-99% accuracy, ensuring each student is able to get in-classroom assistance tailored to their abilities. The technology behind Lexplore has become a fast favorite of the international press and has received various awards for its ingenuity and societal impact.

This year, Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out ground breaking businesses across 35 industries and every region. They also judged nominations received through their application process.

The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

“Established players are showing the same kind of nimbleness that we’ve generally associated with startups,” said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with senior editor Amy Farley.

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March-April 2019) is now available online at https://www.fastcompany.com/MIC, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning February 27th. The hashtag is #fcmostinnovative.

Lexplore thanks Fast Company for recognizing the company’s achievements and looks forward to the opportunities the future presents. Lexplore is excited to continue seeking new ways to improve the academic experience of children both nationally and abroad by implementing the latest technology and research.
