Bitae [bee-tah-y]: noun

We chose the name Bitae to convey our vision of a new curriculum vitae, a blockchain-backed digital backpack for a new generation. 


Bitae Tech (formerly known as A4ED Tech) was started by Shanna and Gemma while studying at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. Combining their experiences in refugee policy and entrepreneurship, they entered their idea in a year-long grant competition and an international policy competition, winning both in spring 2018. In summer 2018, they moved to the Columbia Startup Lab to officially launch the business and build the platform.
