“We are proud to help students in high school to develop their autonomy and to give them better tools when they reach college and university levels. We already collaborate with about ten establishments in the United States, including the most important private catholic school. With the new funds, we will gain a bigger foothold in this market that offers a tremendous potential since our product is unique and competitive. We commend our investors for their trust and we are hopeful to obtain new positive impact soon,” says Renaud Boisjoly, CEO of Studyo.

It fosters autonomy and self-empowerment by letting students, amongst others, enter their own tasks and subdivide their work. Parents can also follow their child performance with weekly reports. The platform centralizes all necessary information and communications as much as for the benefits of the student, the parent, the teacher and the school.
A proven application
“We have been more than pleased by the high satisfaction rate of users. All first clients during the initial year are still collaborating with Studyo and the renewal rate reaches 95%. An honourable assessment!” explains Charles Assaf, angel investor at Anges Québec.
“We are committed to the development of Studyo, a promising tool for students, which facilitates their academic path while promoting communication between students, school and parents,” says Christophe Roubinet, Investment Director at Filaction.
