Digital Smart Solutions Limited (DSSL) is a start up Education Technology (EdTech) company that operates in the Continuous Professional & Personal Development (CPPD) and Higher Education (HE) sector of a Global E–Learning Market that is poised to grow at a CAGR of around 15.4% over the next decade to reach approximately $500 billion in a global market of $10Tn by 2030.
As a Knowledge Intensive Company (KIC), our 5-year goal is to develop a highly innovative enterprise with a global commercial ambition, a great potential for growth and having the competency to deliver a disruptive, immersive learning technology to revolutionise a 21st Century curricula. We have designed the Hyperconnected Student Learning Environment (HSLE) with a complementary bespoke digital-array content capability to be delivered through a bubble-driven HCI immersive platform to generate over £100M in revenue per year.
Deploying our patentable, foundation technology, the “Bubble” human-computer interface we will take our TRL-5 prototype (Technology Readiness Level – as pioneered by NASA) to TRL-9 within 18 months. This technolgical advanced platform will personalise learning at scale; generating well over 100,000 irrefutable micro-accrediting accounts. Our current market expectation is that these accounts will generate a miminium income of £250 pa each, generating over £44m pa in tuition fees alone by 2024. We are already capitalised with £150,000 early funding (Family & Friends) and we are looking to seed finance our product development as a KIC. This offers an effective R&D tax relief prior to deployment of digital content. As a start up KIC we have obtained HMRC Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) compliance, and we continue to apply for Innovate UK and EIC (European Innovation Council) H2020 grants.
