Reasons to Invest

Zoe’s immediately addressable Edtech segment 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.
There are few formal learning platforms or marketplaces leveraging 3D technologies today. Most of Zoe’s competitors are still focused on video or 2D web based interfaces.

OVERVIEW


Introducing Zoe: A Remote Learning Metaverse 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 offerings with a new 3D/XR platform and open marketplace 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 

Current online learning tools don’t typically provide engaging experiences. 


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 the best of both worlds: full 3D multiplayer collaboration applied to real, formal learning modes.



 

*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.

Here’s the breakdown on how Zoe is here for everyone: 


For Individuals

Access the resources you need to create your first immersive experience. Our individual plan allows you to access all Zoe software for your own private use only or for commercial evaluation. It’s the best way to get started with Zoe quickly!


For Businesses / Institutions

Take your institution to the next level with our business/institution plan. Turn your learners into XR makers, or use Zoe for commercial projects. All users get access to Pro accounts, online training resources and support. We help you with everything you need to get started, for hassle-free implementation!




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 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 institutes that are already helping facilitate this are: 



Here’s our pricing breakdown:

  • Creator SaaS licenses $450 - $600 per year 
  • Intend to implement SaaS-type pricing tiers between $29.99 - $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 Extended Reality 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


We are Empowering New Generations of Creators

Plus, 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 marketspace - we feel confident in our ability to be leaders in interactive online education.
