EdTech’s next big thing.

Nuvolos is set to be a major player in the EdTech space. It has been carefully designed and built to bridge the gap between abstract concepts and everyday life, enabling teachers and students to use actual data and hands-on experience.

With Nuvolos, students engage, collaborate and interact in secure, browser-based scalable workspaces to build the skills they’ll need for the future, including coding, problem solving, creativity, and teamwork.

More than most in EdTech, it also supports research

“Our core objective is to boost scientific research and education by integrating cutting edge advances in computation, data and cloud technologies. By doing this, people can focus on their area of research expertise, students can learn in more engaging ways, and facilities can ultimately save resources.”

Alexandru Popescu, Co-Founder and CEO of Alphacruncher

Nuvolos has been designed and engineered by academics for academics. What has been created is a one of a kind research workspace that gives scientific researchers access to storage and cloud computing power never possible before.

This means researchers can at last collaborate and work on scientific discovery in a secure and scalable, powerful workspace, no matter where they are.

The group of investors is also convinced by the team and the product.

“CEO Alexandru Popescu has gathered a brilliant team around him, and we want to see this team develop and the product to succeed – because we know it can.”
