Because we love our educational technology industry, or “edtech” as our French cousins would say, we are sharing good news with you! Did you know that Studyo has obtained financing from the InnovExport Fund to support its international growth?
In the technical sheet sent to the media by the InnovExport Fund, the Studyo application is described as follows: “Rather than focusing on the teacher, Studyo follows the movement aimed at empowering students and equipping them for today's world. . The emphasis is on developing organizational skills, autonomy and self-management, all key elements of the new jobs in the 21e century. "
Next destination: the world!
Studyo was born when the wave of projects giving every student access to a digital device was born. Today, many local schools are using it with their students and the company is now looking to international markets.
To do this, Intuitic recently obtained funding from the InnovExport Fund. Based in Quebec City and set up in the fall of 2016, the InnovExport Fund invests in Quebec companies at the seed or start-up stage which are already supported by an incubator, accelerator or equivalent structure, and which design innovative products or services intended for export. In addition, it works in collaboration with the accelerator-incubator Le Camp to ensure the promotion of its activities to incubators and accelerators across Quebec.
"Studyo has an international reach and we want it to become a central tool for everything concerning the student while keeping him engaged", specify the creators, Mr. Boisjoly and Mr. Bourque.
The InnovExport Fund calls for projects on a quarterly basis to ensure efficient processing of funding requests from innovative Quebec companies in the seed or start-up phase. The next call for projects ends on 1er July!
