Our work
GROWTH
United States
——— EDTECH PROVIDERS
Coursera
—— Strategy execution for International growth.
Objective: Help Coursera prioritize new markets, optimize their value proposition, quantify and profile different types of partners.
Output: We provided a country prioritization that led to developing a high seven figure pipeline which, in turn, translated into closing a six-figure deal within the first four months of the partnership. We also completed donor submissions to internationally supported programs and presented a global Faculty recognition framework to empower faculty leveraging Coursera for Campus.
GROWTH & CAPITAL
Colombia
——— STARTUPS
CloudLabs
—— Product market and business model definition for exponential growth
Objective: Introduce CloudLabs to a worldwide audience.
Output: EDT Partners helped them generate more than ten international partnerships in the EU, China, SE Asia, Spain and other markets. We also helped strengthen CloudLabs’ value proposition. We supported their presence in the Advising Board, which resulted in them winning several awards and becoming finalists in several others. Our efforts ultimately led them to expand into the global Higher Education market.
PUBLIC & PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS
United States
——— NGO & GOVERMENTS
Age of Learning
—— Internationalization strategy.
Objective: Define their international strategy.
Output: We were instrumental in identifying suitable projects and partnerships in Spain, Latin American countries, and Papua New Guinea. In LATAM, we played an advisory role to help them be showcased in front of top public institutions, as well as the largest gathering of ministries of education in 2019. We also validated their value proposition with other key stakeholders like publishers, telcos and other players.
THE FUTURE OF LEARNING
Sweden
——— PUBLISHERS
Kognity
—— Helping publishers transition to an effective digital model by redefining the edge of content industries.
Objective: Provide state-of-the-art insights when considering new market entry.
Output: We developed a world-class research paper that included both public and private education institutions. The report included information extracted from first-hand interviews, internal analysis and research. It provided insights on trends for entering new markets, and defined initial opportunities Kognity could pursue with immediate effect. Kognity saved time and money by not having to do market research, and received recommendations on entering markets to achieve an effective, fast adoption rate.

—— EDT Partners has been instrumental for our international growth strategy both during the planning and execution phase.

ERIK BERGELIN – Co-Founder & Chief Commercial Officer at Strawbees

—— EDT has been a sounding board to our international strategy and provided expertise, access and execution capacity in key markets internationally.
