"The National Science Foundation has recently awarded Nucleos a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to support the development of e-learning solutions for the U.S. corrections industry. This SBIR Phase I project addresses the pressing need for providing incarcerated youth and adults with continual systematic and secure personal education and training opportunities, giving inmates the skills they need to productively re-enter society. It will also reduce recidivism rates, and increase their confidence and the potential for contributing to local communities."
Nucleos, founded by Noah Freedman '12, "transforms delivery of digital resources to enable students anywhere to realize the full potential of digital learning, regardless of their location". Nucleos delivers an operating system and local cloud solution to enable a superior web app experience, independent of Internet connectivity or performance, addressing inequities around access to educational opportunities around the world. The Northern California startup also operates in Zimbabwe and India.
