Business model

Customers to include professional development for associations, businesses, organizations, governments and eventually educational providers from museums to schools.  Free apps for everyone, free to play, pay to customize or level up with advanced tools.

Competitive advantage

No one in the educational field is providing meaningful context across companies - there is a sea of content with very little way to organize or filter through to find the best resources. Personalized learning is about to boom over the coming years and this toolkit will be a comprehensive way to organize formal and informal learning that will fit for professional development and lifelong learning.
