Building relationships with developers and entrepreneurs is core to Digital Promise’s work. The Partner Program aims to create mutually beneficial relationships between our corporate partners, our staff, and our network. We engage with corporate partners as thought leaders, co-designers, and problem solvers alongside our education leaders and researchers. Our partners include:

HP Inc. and Microsoft

Digital Promise Global works with HP Inc. and Microsoft on the Learning Studios project to create student-centered experiential learning environments around the world.

The Oak Foundation

The Oak Foundation invested in Digital Promise Global’s start-up, providing initial core funding, and currently funds Digital Promise Global’s work on the Learner Variability Project (LVP). LVP is bringing together leading researchers across neuroscience, cognitive science and social-emotional learning fields with innovative developers and practitioners to explore and design new models for research-based personalization of learning.


With support from Oculus, the 360 Filmmakers Challenge at Digital Promise Global is inspiring the next generation of virtual reality film creators.
