The digital learning environment we need for the future does not exist yet.
We need to build it, together.

And we have partnered with EdTech Foundry to lead the way.

The EdTech Foundry process always starts with a problem or a need. Always.
We do not read business plans or listen to pitches. We dedicate teams to validate problems and possible solutions.

All problems and solutions are tested with selected universities, lecturers and students.
Universities may influence the process, get insight and early access to new learning technology.

For projects with validated problems, solutions and growth we set up a new company. We build a team with the right skill set to take the company to the next step and back with needed ressources.
