Crimson was founded three years ago by Jamie Beaton and Sharndre Kushor. Jamie is passionate about breaking educational barriers that prevent cross-country migration. They have raised more than $7 million from international hedge funds managers, including Julian Robertson from Wall St heavyweight Tiger Management, which Beaton worked for while he was studying at Harvard and running Crimson.
The company has been on the acquisition path and now includes a number of brands – Crimson Consulting, CrimsonHub, Ivy+Education, Play Atlantic, Medview and UniTutor. The funds it raised are mainly being used to push into China and build the software engineering capability that drives the online learning platform. It has 13,000 students enrolled in programmes and 1000 tutors.
Jamie will talk about his passion for education; starting a business, raising capital and the future. He is keen to meet and talk to startup companies who are looking at the US market.
