In February, Stevenson appeared before the Charlotte City Council and Mecklenburg County commissioners to applaud CMPD offering a Citizen’s Academy, which educates participants on police policies, training and methods. The primary aim of EDUCATE is to translate research into new and better educational products, and to stimulate demand for new and improved products. Educate Plus has longstanding partnerships with many suppliers, service providers and other professional associations. EDUCATE will provide an independent co-working space for Higher Education researchers and innovative EdTech SMEs (without excluding Educational SMEs).
EDUCATE will also work with London’s accelerators who recruit some of the best tech start-ups from the UK and Europe and then for an intensive period of 12-20 weeks provide them with seed investment, intense mentoring, training, connections to customers and investors, opportunities to pilot their product with leading companies and a fast track to raising further investment.
