OVERVIEW


Introducing Zoe: A Creator Marketplace Allowing Anyone to Build Interactive, Immersive Experiences

 


We are here to help learners build their dreams - all through an interactive educational world. 


At Zoe, we create sophisticated & accessible tools for no-code/low-code creators. 


We founded Zoe because we noticed a lot of online tools were not engaging for today’s 14-26 year-olds - nor were they easy to use. We strive to champion creators who seek to elevate 21st century game-based learning for the students, parents and educators of current and future generations.


Our goal is to disrupt the antiquated 20th century learning tools using the rapidly emerging “creator economy” model.


The Zoe Creator Marketplace is our answer to jump-start learning in a new era.



THE PROBLEM


Current Online Learning Lacks Engagement 

Zoom and other 2D web-based learning platforms tend to be isolating - they don’t enable meaningful social interactions and hands-on activities.


Multiplayer online gaming platforms, however, gather billions of engaged users of all ages everyday. Our current education system hasn’t been taking advantage of how those same 3D technologies can increase engagement with learners and educators. Until now. 



THE SOLUTION


We are crafting new ways to interact with the digital world

Zoe provides a metaverse learning: full 3D multiplayer creation applied to education. 



 

*Some functionalities shown in these videos and images below may not yet be available in the current version of Zoe.

We do this by facilitating the crowdsourced creation & distribution of game-like sessions, where learners can play & learn by creating & collaborating in virtual environments accessed from anywhere in the world.


Zoe supports and fosters the EdTech Creator ecosystem, all so that learners and educators can...

  • Import 3D Models: Simply drag and drop objects from local and online 3D libraries into your project
  • Program Interactions: On-the-fly programming using an intuitive no-code system of conditions and actions
  • Play your Experience: Jumping from creating to playing your experience at any time, directly within the app.


THE MARKET


We are Positioned for Growth in the Global Edtech Market

And here’s why...

  • Zoe counts its TAM at $300 billion in 2022 (source)
  • Zoe’s immediately addressable Edtech segmen is estimated at more than $150 billion per year in 2021 growing to $220+ billion
  • EdTech is growing at 16.3% and will grow 2.5x from 2019 to 2025 -  reaching $404 billion in total global expenditure (source)

 


OUR TRACTION


Our Milestones Making Way for a Brighter Future

We break our significant traction milestones into two parts: Industry Alliances and Pilot Creator Development.



Industry Alliances

  • Unity has partnered with Zoe to deliver a VR  program available on Unity Learn, bringing Zoe to their millions of developers and creators. 
  • Facebook/ Oculus, a long-time partner of the company provides both funding and co-marketing opportunities. Zoe is currently featured on their new Oculus AppLab distribution channel.   
  • Pico, the leading VR hardware vendor in Asia, is partnering with Zoe to deliver hardware to institutions and businesses using the platform.
  • Epic has awarded Zoe with an Epic Megagrant to further develop the toolset.
  • HTC is both a hardware and development partner since 2016 and an early investor in Zoe.
  • Microsoft for Startups has partnered with us to bring Zoe to Microsoft EdTech ecosystem for both mobile and XR.
  • Zoe was selected as an Elite 200 company by GSV and Finalist at their GSV cup (GSV Summit is the gold standard of conferences in EdTech).

 

Pilot Creator Development 

  • Zoe currently has multiple levels of pilot Zoe Marketplace Creators, who are customers onboarded and actively using the Zoe creation tools, and generating recurring revenue per month of approximately $15,000. 
  • Zoe has also built strategic relationships with several advanced learning institutions as a conduit for recruiting and testing the onboarding of Zoe Marketplace Creators.


WHAT WE DO


Hands-on Immersive Creation & Learning Platform


*Some functionalities shown in these videos and images below may not yet be available in the current version of Zoe.

  

The Zoe App is a standalone cross-platform application - allowing anyone to create and host virtual learning spaces and games. 


gif


*Some functionalities shown in these videos and images below may not yet be available in the current version of Zoe.




Zoe VR App is a standalone application where students can build their 3D environment and bring it to life through an intuitive programming interface. It can be used to tell stories, create games, explain processes or solve problems.


Zoe for Unity The plugin has been conceived precisely for XR (Extended Realities) technologies and the possibilities they offer. It enables creation of complex interactive experiences – without coding – deployed to different kinds of headsets, from virtual to augmented and mixed realities. Zoe for Unity is recommended from High School up to University level.


Zoe Mobile App With similar functions as for the standalone Zoe VR app, the Zoe Mobile App will be compatible with smartphones and tablets, making it our most accessible software tool yet. The Zoe Mobile App is now available for selected early access. 


THE BUSINESS MODEL


Our Open Marketplace Model Has a Global Impact

We have begun selling pilot creator licenses in advance of launching the Zoe open marketplace this year.


This marketplace model will reach a large number of users - having the opportunity to make a greater impact on global learning. With an opportunity for infinite metaverses, creators can build their own 3D space in which they can host live sessions and monetize the content they create. This provides a community in which votes and sponsorships can help provide the highest quality of content available to learners. Some institutions that are already helping facilitate this are: 



Our Premium Creator SaaS licenses will cost between $15.99 - $49.99.

We believe revenue per creator will grow as more features are added to Zoe, and as marketplace network effects take hold. 


The Zoe marketplace allows for creators and hosts to either give away or charge for their content - only for a 15% marketplace transaction fee. We are aiming for an open “gig” economy marketplace model where “prosumer” creators will eventually be able to support themselves on earnings from creating and selling content on the Zoe platform and marketplace -- similar to Roblox for game creators.


Here are some of our most recent data points showing our models effectiveness:

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT


Ahead of the Game

There are few formal learning platforms or marketplaces leveraging 3D technologies today. 


We believe most of Zoe’s competitors are still focused on video or 2D web based interfaces. The few platforms supporting 3D and immersive environments provide pre-made content or experiences students have to go through - like a classic textbook. 




THE VISION


Provide today’s generation with skills needed for their career path


 
Led by a large community of prosumer-type individuals who host their content and earn part or all of their livelihood from the Zoe platform and marketplace - we believe this goal motivates students and educators alike, and is well within our reach.


By then, we want to have tens of thousands of valuable content items available for use by consumers - all on a marketplace that generates over $1 billion in gross transactions.


OUR LEADERSHIP


A Team of Experts in Immersive Technologies and Education  

We have been working in the XR and immersive learning space for over 7 years - having successfully navigated its ups and downs by having a clear goal, and a strong vision for what we want to build. 


With this, we’ve been able to attract top-tier talent and advisors, develop key partnerships, and secure substantial, non-dilutive funding to support our early years of perfecting our platform. 

  

The founders, extended team and advisory board have a strong understanding and complementary set of proven skills to make emerging technologies usable by anyone.



WHY INVEST


Our plan is to become leaders in interactive online education. 

Led by a large community of prosumer-type individuals who host their content and earn part or all of their livelihood from the Zoe platform and marketplace - we believe this goal motivates students and educators alike, and is well within our reach. The no-code software tools allow learners to be creative without feeling intimidated by the technology.


With our establishment in the industry, and our ability to grow within our market space - we feel confident in our ability to be leaders in interactive online education.

Meet Sylvain Joly, Head of Design & Co-founder.

25 days ago


Sylvain is our co-founder and Head of Design. He created the first 360 interactive story when he was only a student and went on to supervise all aspects of design for immersive projects involving Fortune 500 companies. He makes sure the Zoe platform can be used by anyone!

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your background? 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been passionate about visual and interactive media. I studied and practiced in various fields: illustration, graphic design, motion graphics, visual effects, web design. I’ve also always strived to innovate. In 2012, I created the first interactive story on 360° that made use of the gyroscope in iPhones and iPads. It went viral overnight and got us our first WIRED magasine interview. Shortly after, I joined Emilie and Maria to continue working on similar innovations.

We worked on high-end projects for Google, Samsung and Oculus with hardware that wasn’t accessible to the public yet. I always have a blast figuring out how to design content for those platforms. The tools we created were initially made to help speed up my design process; then those expanded to our whole team and now everyone gets to learn and use it to build their own content.

Q: What is your role within the team?

Ergonomics, usability, feedback,... At the end of the day, our software needs to be as simple to use as possible, by as many people as possible. As Head of Design, this is my primary goal, and I make sure that philosophy stays true amongst my team. I also keep a close eye on the feedback from members of our community, since they are the ones who ultimately use our platform.

Q: How do you see the future of the company?

Zoe has a great potential as an immersive platform for collaboration, sharing, teaching, co-creation. A platform like Zoe is essential – now more than ever – for its ability to inspire and bring people together.

Meet Maria Beltran, Co-Founder and Head of Product Development.

28 days ago


Maria is our co-founder and Head of Product Development. Originally from Bogota she is based in Switzerland and heads the development of the Zoe platform. Maria is a true innovator, an award-winning product designer and has worked on numerous products at the intersection of new technologies and design. 

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your background? 

After obtaining my Bachelor in Industrial Design at the prestigious ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland, I turned myself towards programming and new technologies. I followed the Interaction Design Master degree at the HEAD where I met co-founders Emilie and Sylvain. In 2014, we decided to found our own studio focused on creating unique user experiences with emerging technologies – from cutting edge augmented reality installations, to immersive theater and virtual reality experiences that won multiple awards around the world. At the same time I started working at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology on educational robotics. I gained expertise in both user centered digital products and educational tools for what has now become Zoe Immersive.

Q: What is your role within the team?

Though I am not a programmer, I’ve always been interested in coding and I am familiar with computational thinking. Understanding the basics of abstraction I can easily communicate with developers and engineers. Zoe is a design driven product and my role is to ensure the bridge between programming and design. I lead a team of technical designers and developers, facilitating and contributing to the implementation of the software.

Q: How do you see the future of the company?

The need for a platform like Zoe is now undeniable. As early as 2017 we were already shaping a marketplace to foster 3D immersive creation. With the Creator Economy growing and remote virtual collaboration and learning becoming essential, we are bringing real value to new generations.

Meet the Team: Q&A with Emilie Joly, CEO & Co-founder.

about 1 month ago

Q&A with Emilie Joly, CEO & Co-founder


Q: Can you tell us a bit about your background? 

As my fellow co-founders, I obtained a Master’s degree in Interaction Design at the Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD). Early on, I had a strong interest in adapting new technologies in compelling ways, and we quickly started working on spatial computing - first using smartphones and tablets, then diving into VR with the first Oculus development kits. We also had the chance to work with the Google team on early versions of their Tango Tablets and other amazing hardware you will never see in the market!

I was quickly placed in the role of CEO and was able to get R&D funding from companies such as Facebook and Google who were working on the first iterations of immersive hardware at the time.


Q: How did Zoe come to be?

The embryo of what later became Zoe was created in those first years: a way for our design team to work quickly and effectively amongst programmers, a workflow focusing on quick iterations and ease of use rather than technical hurdles.

Zoe itself started when we realized how our tools had an impact on new generations during our time at the HTC Vive X accelerator in San Francisco. By empowering them into creating interactive worlds of their own they became more engaged, excited and connected with their learning experience. We especially had a high impact on non-technical groups which was a great win for us. 


Q: How do you see the future of the company?

Zoe means “life”, and bringing ideas to life is exactly what our platform allows creators to do. We live in a world where collaboration, creation and communication skills are becoming mandatory. We also know that learning by doing is more efficient than consuming information and trying to memorize course material.

There are popular learning platforms that focus on video or 2D output, but 3D is what new generations are used to and will grow with. I’m 36 and I played my first 3D game back when I was 10; and when you look at video games like Roblox and Minecraft, the engagement level is really high, over 42 M daily active users! A marketplace that is making good use of 3D for learning and creating purposes doesn’t exist… yet.

Zoe embodies this vision of a future where anyone can create, share and learn in 3D, as if they were in the same physical space regardless of their geographical location. Right now these creative capabilities are still restricted to highly skilled/technical teams, but we aim at enabling everyone to create & program virtual worlds of their own and become an active participant in the next era of Spatial Computing. Some might call it a metaverse!
