Quotations:

  • ‘There’s something very magical happening at the beginning which sets the trajectory for our futures.’ - @EasyPeasyApp 
  • ‘Half (of school ready children) are not ready to learn because they lack these basic skills; concentration, self-control, getting on well with peers, resilience.’  - via @EasyPeasyApp 
  • ‘Could EasyPeasy support social mobility?’ That’s our mission.’  -via @EasyPeasyApp
  • ‘It’s really becoming the hub for EdTech start ups in the UK.’ - via @EdspaceHoxton 
  • ‘The connection with the college is great. The principal is very entrepreneurial. If we are co-located we have more of an opportunity to build and grow things together.’  - via @EdspaceHoxton
  • ‘We work with a network of school chains; Ark and Oasis academies, for example. They will trial the products, give feedback, potentially become first customers’ - @EmergeLabs
  • ‘There are 5 million people in the world today who won’t have access to safe and affordable surgery.’ - via @OpenSimulation 
  • ‘We need to drastically increase surgical training and the surgical workforce.’  - via @OpenSimulation 
  • ‘We started with a pizza box; from a pizza box we moved to a box file to the current wooden box. The idea that we want to share with the world is you don’t need high end complex things…you just need your mobile phone, a cardboard box and you could learn how to perform a surgery.’
