New edtech partnerships for Pearson

Education-PearsonAs we reported back in May and in August, Pearson are undergoing a change from print publisher to digital solutions provider. The latest news is that they have partnered with three Boston-based edtech organisations.

Pearson has partnered with three Boston-based organisations working in education technology: "entrepreneurship campus" Exponential TechSpace, educational programme provider LearnLaunch and edtech accelerator LearnLaunchX.

The partnerships are intended to create "new innovative relationships and opportunities for collaboration".

Exponential TechSpace, founded in April this year, is a campus that houses over two dozen edtech start-ups. LearnLaunch supports the creation and growth of education technology and learning companies by bringing together innovators, educators, investors, students, buyers, school leaders and distribution channels. LearnLaunchX provides chosen companies with seed funding, workspace, mentors, and direct access to the learning marketplace.

Pearson employees will provide mentorship to the start-ups at LearnLaunchX and have the opportunity to work with the companies at both LearnLaunchX and Exponential. The publisher will also provide product guidance and market information to the edtech innovators.
