What they’re doing and why

Chalkle aims to help reignite a renaissance of learning by empowering passionate teachers and community organisers to offer more adult learning opportunities in our communities.

The long-term mission involves creating software and support systems that can enable financially sustainable community education networks along with viable, exciting jobs for local community organisers to use Chalkle as a system to create a thriving landscape of lifelong learning opportunities.

Chalke has begun this journey by providing a complete admin software and marketing system to deliver great learning opportunities in the real world.

What’s next

Chalkle are in the process of further validating their business model by getting feedback from existing customers and channel partners, and by getting new channel partners on board. Their strategy for the next six months is to expand their coverage to new regions, raise capital, and further develop their online platform.
