Transforming smartphones into pocket simulators that college professors can use as powerful and convenient teaching games.

We develop college-level educational games. Simulations of complex processes designed specifically for mobile devices that enable students to learn by doing, put their decision-making skills to practice and exercise critical thinking in a fun, entertaining and dynamic way.

Stage 5: Scaling

At this moment we have to mobile simulations that are been used as teaching tools in different countries. We have support for multiple languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese) and have a third simulation in the works. Our company is focusing on expanding the reach and impact our technology currently has.

Solution

We are transforming smartphones into pocket simulators that college professors can use as powerful and convenient teaching games.

Target Beneficiaries

Higher education students and professors.

Mission and Vision

Make our top of the line teaching tools easily available and easy to use by students anywhere in the world, directly impacting the way they learn and tackle problems.

Competitive Advantage

We are the only ones in the market developing simulations designed specifically for mobile devices, taking advantage of the powerful convenient tools smartphones are. Students don't have the need to carry their laptops around or the universities the need to support expensive computer labs. Furthermore, competing products are mostly focused on functionality, giving little to no emphasis on graphical design and ease of use. Our team has great expertise in the aforementioned areas making our offerings a completer and more modern product.

Planned Goals and Milestones

We are working to keep growing our portfolio of mobile simulations. The next one in our pipeline is related to financial education.
