INNcubatED is a Bogota-based EdTech incubator, and is in charge of screening the Latin American start-up companies participating in the GES 2014 competition. The event took place last Friday (August 1st)at HeroesFest de Innpulsa, Colombia, at Medellín.

 10 companies presented, but only 4 moved on to the next challenge, and here they are (by alphabetical  order):

 1-     Educatablet (Venezuela) 

 EducaTablet distributes academic digital content to thousands of students in different countries in Latin America.

 Mejorando offers courses created with professionals in the industry, in Spanish, so you can get the best jobs or found your own startup. Courses can be delivered live or recorded, and students get Diploma Certification.

 3-     PuntajeNacional (Chile)
