Transatlantic EdTech Innovation: Boston-Based LearnLaunch and London-Based Edspace Announce Partnership

BOSTON, Aug. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LearnLaunch, a Boston-based organization dedicated to driving innovation and transforming learning, and Edspace, the UK’s only co-working space dedicated to education innovators, are collaborating to promote transatlantic innovation in the Education Technology sector. The partnership will utilize both organizations’ infrastructure, industry leadership, and deep expertise, aiming to offer a landing spot for edtech companies expanding into new markets.

Both organizations will offer reciprocal co-working space for members and portfolio companies traveling overseas.  Industry talks, topical events, and workshops are just some of the benefits enjoyed by members of both organizations, giving those within the community a chance to connect and forge valuable relationships with like-minded innovators in the U.S. and U.K. 

With over 60 different active member companies, Edspace has set up shop in the creative heart of London’s East End, offering a range of in-house benefits such as discounted access to gyms, technical suites, and marketing services. Across the Atlantic, in the heart of Boston’s Innovation District, LearnLaunch’s Campus houses an edtech community of more than 35 companies, while the LearnLaunch Accelerator has invested in 45 companies over the course of the past four years. These companies and entrepreneurs enjoy the benefits of the booming edtech ecosystem in Boston.

“By partnering with Edspace, we continue to offer LearnLaunch companies new opportunities to build a global platform,” said Liam Pisano, Managing Director of LearnLaunch. “Education is a global issue and as an organization we’re constantly learning about international markets, and how lessons taken from those markets can improve our solutions domestically.  We are also working hard to provide new international opportunities for LearnLaunch companies.”

“The partnership gives our members the opportunity to work closely and talk to similar American companies that carry the same ambition, type of target market and industry interests,” said Anjulie Truong, Managing Director of Edspace. “Edspace members traveling to Boston can now network with people who can make a real difference to their business.”
