ETO, is a small, Christian charity working in Kenya, with orphaned and needy children, we are registered in U.K. Ireland and Kenya. In this payment-by-results model, CIFF (as an outcome payer) promises to pay back the investor UBSOF the original investment amount plus extra returns as long as the agreed targets are delivered by Educate Girls (the service provider). Most of the children who have been educated by ETO are now fully employed, some of them as teachers, pastors, dressmakers, shoemakers, etc, some even working for ETO. The EDUCATE project team will set up a co-working space at the UCL Knowledge Lab (LKL).
Educate Texas uses its unique collaborative position to facilitate the sharing of data that can make a real difference for students across the state. Nesta will provide resources for the EDUCATE virtual space based on Nesta’s areas of expertise – this will be based on Nesta publications on EdTech research, Accelerators and Impact Investment. F6S will provide the business expertise for EDUCATE and will take on the role of recruiting start-ups and SMEs in EdTech to become beneficiaries of the project using their existing community. EDUCATE will provide a unique physical and virtual co-working space for Higher Education researchers dedicated to Educational SMEs.
Educate Texas supports the effective use of data, transparency of evaluation results, and shared access to research and best practices. The Content Marketing Matrix includes educate as one of the four main components of content marketing. R&D Tax workshop will educate start-ups about the benefits of the incentives as well as explaining ‘step-by-step’ how to apply for consideration of such incentives. Problem is, if we don’t educate them before we train them, it could lead to problems.
A leading catalyst for progress, Educate Texas, a public-private initiative of Communities Foundation of Texas, is an innovative alliance of public and private groups that share a common goal: strengthening the public education system so that every Texas student is prepared for success in school, in the workforce, and in life. The next cohort of Educate U.S. students will travel to Houston, Texas in January 2018.
We also plan to have a yearly presence at BETT Futures Start-up Zone, run by The Education Foundation, in order to attract more beneficiaries in first instance and as project progresses to showcase the results of our work and seek development of partnerships developed in EDUCATE seeking investment or users. To generate long-term, positive impact for Texas students, Educate Texas proudly connects a diverse group of organizations dedicated to quality education and links them in a powerful and unprecedented way. The EDUCATE project will be delivered by UCL in partnership with F6S, The Education Foundation and Nesta.
