Cleveratom (2006-2011) proud to be part of new business success in the East

Lots of investment has been made in the Eastern Region to generate new business start-ups, and at Cleveratom (2006-2011) we are proud to be one of the big success stories. 

Our learning, technology, creativity company was formed in January 2007 by colleagues made redundant at the demise of Ultralab (1990-2006); the fondly remembered learning, technology, research centre which existed purely to make learning more delightful through the power of new and emerging technologies.  

Under a new flag we’ve stayed focus of challenging learning and have been working on some exciting new projects all over the country.  We’ve worked hard to build a business while running a business, it is no easy challenge. Our first day trading was conducted in the meeting room of the Essex Technology and Innovation Centre (Ongar) and for six months we lived in an office within the centre, pretty soon we started to grow.

Twenty months later the Cleveratom (2006-2011) team have just completed the first year of working from our own offices in Chelmsford (Clever Towers).  We employ five staff, have done lots of cool projects concurrently, continue to work and develop the fields of Personalised Learning, Learner Voice, ASD and Autism, Learning Platforms, Virtual Learning, Digital Creativity, Social Software and Building Schools for the Future.  

Project partners we’ve had the pleasure of working hand in hand with so far include the BBC, NHS, MacMillan Cancer Support, London Business School, Edison Learning, Yorkshire and Humber Grid for Learning Foundation, City College Norwich,, Anglia Rusking University, University of East Anglia, BBC Northern Ireland, Futures College, Skanska, UEA, and many more….

We’re now in the last few months of 2008, having a great time and enjoying some of the coverage we are getting to promote good business in the East…..
