Partnering opportunity

London-based educational technology (EdTech) company is looking for cultural and creative partnerships

Summary

The London-based specialises in virtual reality educational technology. The company combines culture with school curriculum and connects children with cultural education inspired by creative and historic institutions across the world. The company's mission is to use technology to bridge the gap of arts and culture accessibility and is seeking cultural partners to be featured in their education game under a service, license or joint venture agreement.

Partner sought

The company is looking for creative and cultural partners to feature within the EdTech platform. These partners can be from various sectors of cultural education--ranging from historic sites and houses, cultural institutions, galleries, archives, libraries, creative funds, or arts charities. They are looking for institutions looking to promote digital content, increase audience attendance, and educational outreach through virtual reality. The company is able to portray themes, such as ancient Egypt, events such as an event in World War I, or transatlantic trade, objects such as paintings and sculpture, etc. The company aims to feature at least three objects from the partner within the level (one level means one gamified digital experience, for example, one thematic adventure featuring up to ten 10 artefacts or objects would be considered a level) The role of the partner would be to collaborate together to create the company-specific level that showcases the history and knowledge of the chosen site/ object/ artefact/ event. This collaboration can be as hands-on/off as they see fit. The only requirements of the cultural partner would be an agreement of partnership, images/scans of artefacts to be featured within the level, agreement on the narrative of the level, branding guidelines from the partner, and any additional education information they would provide. The company is open to cultural institutions to have a more collaborative role in the process and welcome co-authorship of the level and incorporation of the educational department within the creation. The agreement is ranging from free to paid services. This allows museums to have the range of options of on-boarding with the company's platform for free, all the way to having a bespoke experience package they can sell for retail in their shops. The benefits for the partners range from: expanding outreach globally, attracting and retaining the youth audience, and further digitalising their collections, to the opportunity to learn about the audiences through our data insights and gain revenue shares from the co-creation. With our platform, we allow cultural partners to: • Create an addition revenue stream • Showcase information in an exciting, interactive, and educational way • Promote their collections and artifacts through outreach and global presence • Measure impact with our data analytic feedback • Engage and understand the youth demographic • Connect with visitors before, during, and after their visit, prompting retention

Description

The London-based company provides a virtual reality (VR) EdTech platform where culture meets curriculum. The company provides an app-based programme that requires a smart phone and existing off-the-shelf cardboard for a child to be transported into a world of culture. Their product can be tailored to children between the ages of 5-13, and they are able to provide the experience in various languages and dialects. Through the latest in immersive technology, children can adventure through curriculum-led quests and explore gamified content inspired by museums across the world. On the back-end of their platform, parents and educators will be able to track their children's learning trajectory through a series of data metrics being refined by the company's academic research. The company is looking for cultural institutions-- UNESCO heritage sites, historic houses, museums, galleries, and archives--to be featured in the platform. This will not only expand the institution's outreach and educational extension, but it will also allow children all over the world to experience the knowledge firsthand through virtual reality. The company aims at sparking creativity, expand knowledge, and helping shape global citizenship in children. The company is looking to sign service, license or joint venture agreement. They are able to offer the partnerships ranging from free to paid services. More details are included in the “Partnerships sought” section.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
