Family members may soon be able to watch and encourage the progress of their loved ones via a new online social platform.
The Acknowledge Xc platform works alongside a school’s existing network to allow pupils to create an online profile showcasing videos, pictures and highlights of their academic achievements and extra-curricular activities. It can then be shared securely with their nearest and dearest who will have personalised login access to the profile.
The start-up business, which is offering 15% equity for £100,000 to investors on crowdfunding site Funding Tree, says the platform can also be used to supplement a pupil’s academic CV, which in turn can aid in university and school applications by highlighting their past commitments and extra-curricular activities.
Acknowledge Xc will initially target UK independent school pupils though ultimately the platform will be marketed internationally.
Dillen Iyavoo, CEO and co-founder of Funding Tree, commented: “We’re extremely proud to support another fantastic innovation designed to inspire our youngsters to greater things and help more of them fulfil their potential. Acknowledge Xc’s platform is aimed at a large global market; its technology is impressive and its appeal clear.”
