Startup Jedi was pleasing you with content during the whole summer so today we decided to prepare a digest of the best articles of recent months. Meet our TOP 10 articles of the summer!


1. Revolution in online education: how a Belarusian startup is changing the rules of the game — the story of EduDo startup



I would like to start with news that made it to trends in a matter of days: in July we talked about a new EduDo project — a platform for people who want to gain knowledge in various fields in the most convenient format. The app will be full of short videos on a variety of topics: from fashion and creativity to global problems and politics.

Yury Shlaganov, CEO of EduDo, came up with the idea for a startup with the help of numerous studies that he devoted to Generation Z, or zoomers. By the way, one of these studies is about their mental health.

Still doubt if this startup will become another TikTok? We are glad to inform you that the team has already charmed investors and raised $170,000 of investments, and this is just the beginning!

What does it mean? Now in our social media you will more and more often see short videos on topics that will be useful to both startup founders, investors, and everyone who is close and interested in the topic of startups.
