clxSeeking to rid education of factory style learning methods, Core Learning Exchange (Core-LX) has stayed true to its mission to deliver a competency-based, personalized learning experience for every student through it’s Mastery Learning Platform.

The Boulder-based startup’s platform has been implemented across three states for this school year. In addition, they have partnered with Vant4ge to reform education in the California Prison System.

In June, Core-LX was selected as an Emerging Private Sector Partner by State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA).

Core-LX also announced a partnership with Impact Navigators in July to launch their first Career and Technical Education Accelerator Program in Salt Lake City.
They have also surpassed $30,000 in revenue during the BoomStartup’s Spring 2016 program.

“Boomstartup was an entrepreneur’s bootcamp where in a matter of weeks I learned the latest startup practices,” Jeff Katzman, Core Learning Exchange CEO said. “But the most valuable part of the program was the introduction to the mentors. I was able to establish a network that would have otherwise taken years to build.”

Core-LX’s Mastery Learning Platform includes playlist and lesson builders, and a digital learning content library featuring lessons from Florida Virtual School, Khan Academy and BetterMarks.

They were recently featured in Entrepreneur Magazine as one of “5 fascinating EdTech Companies From National Education Week.”

Additionally, Core-LX was spotlighted by Beehive Startups in August.
