Our multi-lens insights co-create growth.

We believe that impactful solutions are beautiful in theory (“pure”) and feasible in practice (“applied”). We believe that diverse perspectives, experiences and fields of knowledge add richness to our solutions allowing us to size up problems and potential from all sides. We believe that resilience is built when learning is a key component of company culture.

ROXANNE DESFORGES

Roxanne is a former K12 teacher, a researcher and lecturer at McGill University, and spent 5 years building an EdTech startup from the ground up. These first-hand experiences, from all sides of education, has given her insight and expertise that only learning-by-doing can. Teaching gave her a deep understanding of school systems and dynamics. Her experience in higher ed brought knowledge of education policy and research. Her startup years taught her to think of a business as a system and that true sight is the ability to shift between micro and macro lenses. It also taught her to pitch, raise VC funds, design and optimize implementation and customer success experiences, design products, and to listen to voices and perspectives that are different from her own. Acting also as thought-leader for the organization, the experience enabled her to build a transnational network of influential EdTech advocates.
