The Lemann Foundation Board of Directors were very interested in learning how start ups in the region are scaling up their solutions and increasing the impact on a country level.
With Brazil being a very large country, it was very important for The Lemann Foundation to meet start-ups that have a potential of scale for K-12 and are already structured in terms of public sector relationship, deployment in schools, or high-level business models/results. We are happy to say that Playware is most certainly one of those companies, and we are more than ready to explore Brazil with 3DHive!
