Another of the tech companies to watch is South African ed-tech company GetSmarter, which had been a darling of the African tech space for some time. The company cemented its place back in May when global e-learning firm 2U acquired it for $103 million plus $20 million in potential earnouts.

I have been working at 2U full-time (Less than a year)
This is the best company I have ever worked for. I'm confident in the future of the company and I know that if I strive for excellence, I too will share the rewards of the opportunities. Also company meetings are awesome!!!

Keep developing your leadership skills and providing opportunities to your SSAs.
