The partnership came out of the Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools fall, 2016, meeting in Baltimore
Kelowna, British Columbia (PRWEB) December 12, 2016
FreshGrade announced today that they have agreed to join Digital Promise as a new Corporate Partner, specifically supporting the organization’s League of Innovative Schools. The move comes on the heels of FreshGrade sending representatives to the League of Innovative Schools Fall 2016 meeting in Baltimore in November.
FreshGrade was recently recognized with a Companies-to-Watch Award that honors early-stage Canadian technology companies in business as part of the Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50™ Awards. They were also named Ed Tech Business Leader of the Year at the 7th Annual Canadian Ed Tech Leadership Summit. The company is looking to find strategic partnerships in the US to expand its North American footprint, and team leaders were impressed with the League of Innovative Schools.
“When we learned about the innovative ways that League of Innovative Schools districts were changing the game in education we knew it was something we wanted to be a part of,” said FreshGrade COO and President, Chris Besse. “Working with the League was an incredible way for us to connect with leaders in educational innovation, research, and community building.”
The partnership looks to be a winning combination for both organizations. Building relationships with developers and entrepreneurs is core to Digital Promise’s work. Their Corporate Partner Program aims to create mutually beneficial relationships between corporate partners, and Digital Promise’s staff and network. The organization, which was created with the mission to accelerate innovation in education to improve opportunities to learn, engages with corporate partners as thought leaders, co-designers, and problem solvers working alongside their education leaders and researchers.
“Looking forward, working together with leaders in education across the United States through the League offers us the opportunity to make a positive impact for more students, teachers, and parents,” said Besse. “We look forward to working closely with the League, and its members to move education forward in schools across the United States.”
