Holon IQ Global Community – Future of Education and Workforce

HolonIQ is a global impact intelligence platform for innovative education technology companies. Started in 2018, the company has developed a brilliant tool to analyse and generate insights from a vast array of impact market data.

At Minds Studio we had the opportunity to review the platform in depth and our minds were blown away. We have suggested it to some of our clients for the analysis of business opportunities and potential partnerships or expansions.

This Australian company has also created relevant industry insights using their own technology. Some examples of it are the “Global Learning Landscape“, “Edtech Unicorns“, “Education in 2030“and other regional charts displaying the most promising Ed-tech companies in the industry.

The company is hosting 12 in-person events (New York, Bengaluru, Berlin, Cairo, Jakarta, London, Melbourne, Mexico City, Paris, Singapore and Stockholm) and 3 virtual summits (Africa, East Asia and Middle East) about the future of Education -recently adding Climate Tech and Healthcare-.

HolonIQ’s Future of Education and Workforce track

At Minds Studio, we are excited to be joining the “Future of education and workforce” track, happening in London, on the 16th of November, 2022. If you are interested in joining us, you can find more information here. This is the summit brief:

“Imagining a world where everyone of earth has equal access to the future.

Education, training and the world of work have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the role of digital will be core to the future of learning – from early childhood, K12, higher education through to workforce upskilling.

We are seeing full spectrum innovation from digital content, online learning, advanced technology from AI to robotics and, web3 to the metaverse into language learning, tutoring, assessment, up-skilling and beyond.

Capital for innovation is flowing into the sector as traditional education systems urgently seek digital solutions right across the learner lifecycle and new models, approaches and solutions emerge to build new competitive landscapes.”

Minds Studio helps Galileo grow its biggest Homeschooling Global Summit to date.

The challenge

On March 2020, the booming online platform Galileo was looking for ways to engage homeschooling, worldschooling and unschooling families in order to grow its strategic position during Covid-19 lockdown.

The Founders of Galileo trusted Minds Studio to design and implement the biggest Homeschooling Global Summit to date.

The goal

In conversations with the Galileo leadership team, we set the target of reaching at least 10,000 attendees and +100 experts in less than 3 months. The previous 2019 edition of this summit had reached nearly 3,000 people and 42 experts.

The solution

After 2-3 weeks of conversations with different parts of the organisation, we designed an initial project scope and plan of the brand new 2020 Homeschool Global Summit, and presented it to the team.

The outline included the definition of the learning solution ( 10 learning days, 100% online on-demand recorded content) and the launch plan (including resources needed and main KPIs for successful delivery).

The implementation

Once the project design was accepted, Minds Studio led the implementation of this project from three different angles: Product & Tech design, Marketing planning and Content production.

Thanks to the integration of Minds Studio with Galileo’s existing team (We would like to thank from here to all of them!) we were able to build a complete new Summit with links to +100 interviews of worldwide experts, that can be watched on-demand for free. Some of them include:

All the interviews were scheduled, recorded, edited,uploaded and marketed through the Demio platform (The platform that Minds Studio identified as optimal in this case) in less than 8 weeks. The team consisted of 1 person building the Product & Tech, 2 people in Marketing, and 5 people in Content production.


+80 Interviews were recorded with 105 speakers across 10 different days, and the content has been watched by more than 10,000 registered attendees.

Thanks to the solution implemented Galileo could also gather important data, including individual attendance to each talk, as well as the focus of the audience in each talk and their interests.

This project has allowed Minds Studio to get a deeper understanding of self-directed education, getting to know some of it’s biggest thought leaders -such as John Holt, Peter Gray, Pat Farenga or Jerry Mintz– and the latest trends related to homeschooling, unschooling, micro-schools and alternative ways of education for children.

Next steps

After analysing the results achieved through the HGS2020 Summit during a Retrospective session, Galileo decided to continue working with Minds Studio to grow its Self-Directed Global School.
