Immersify Education (formerly, DigiDentistry), combines modern teaching concepts with the latest technology to support students in their learning and supplement university curricula with expert resources. The Salford-based start-up successfully raised a seed round of £260,000 in 2019.
WHAT PROBLEM IS IMMERSIFY EDUCATION SOLVING?
Founded by Chloe Barrett in 2018 after spotting a gap in the educational content sector, Immersify Education’s learning platform enhances the student experience and provides an interactive, immersive way of learning that is tailored to the individual. By using 3D visuals and interactive content combined with expert content update the university learning experience.
WHAT WAS THE FUNDING USED FOR?
The funding and Non Executive Director placement, facilitated by NorthInvest, enabled the company to expand its offering across verticals into other university subjects, as well as oversee a rebrand from DigiDentistry to Immersify Education.
An undisclosed NorthInvest Angel was placed as a Non Executive Director at Immersify Education as well as contributing to a total raise of £260,000 equity investment, led by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s GM Investment Fund
