LearnLaunch, provider of educational programs and events to the region’s edtech community; and LearnLaunchX, Boston’s edtech accelerator.

Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, today announced a strategic partnership with Boston’s most influential edtech ecosystem players: Exponential TechSpace, an edtech entrepreneurship campus; LearnLaunch, provider of educational programs and events to the region’s edtech community; and LearnLaunchX, Boston’s edtech accelerator. The partnership will create new innovative relationships and opportunities for collaboration between Pearson and Boston’s entrepreneurial edtech community in order to tackle some of the biggest challenges in education.

As part of the partnership, Pearson employees will provide mentorship to the startups at LearnLaunchX and have the ability to work with the companies at both Exponential and LearnLaunchX. Pearson will also provide product guidance and market information to edtech innovators, and participate in LearnLaunch meetups and its annual conference. Additionally, LearnLaunchX companies focused on K-12 will have the opportunity to join Pearson’s rapidly growing partner community of independent software vendors. This program provides technical and marketing support through integration with PowerSchool (Pearson’s web-based student information system).

“We are thrilled to have Pearson demonstrate their strong support for the emerging edtech ecosystem in Boston through this partnership. Promising edtech startups need the opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders like Pearson,” said Hakan Satiroglu, founder of Exponential TechSpace and co-founder of LearnLaunchX.

“Pearson has demonstrated a commitment to support innovation and to the educational future of this country by embracing change in learning systems,” said Jean Hammond, co-founder of LearnLaunch and LearnLaunchX. “We welcome their support in encouraging the innovation coming from Boston’s edtech entrepreneurs.”

“At Pearson, we believe that technology has the power to transform education, but also recognize that the industry faces some big challenges that we can't tackle alone,” said Diana Stepner, Head of Future Technologies at Pearson. “That's why we're excited to be teaming up with Exponential and LearnLaunch - key players in the Boston edtech community - to share our deep knowledge of the education industry with startups on campus, while also learning from their dynamic, fast-paced cultures.”
