Mila Semeshkina: "A million Lectera users represents a million people's trust, which we have earned and will certainly maintain and increase."
It seems that just yesterday, the Lectera platform was launched. It really wasn't that long ago - only 2.5 years ago. Over this time, we have achieved many accomplishments: the EdTech Breakthrough Awards, the status of the best platform for lifelong learning in the world, and the inclusion in HolonIQ’s top 100 most promising educational startups. In addition, Lectera CEO Mila Semeshkina was rated among the prestigious top 100 Russian women in IT startups and the top 10 CEOs of EdTech companies worldwide. Furthermore, she became a regular contributor and an official member of the Forbes Business Council. Also, she directs the Women's Empowerment Council, an international organization that helps women realize their potential and build careers.
However, Mila considers today's achievement the most important - this is not the opinion of some, albeit reputable, jury. This is the trust of a million people, which we earned and will certainly maintain and increase.
