Market analysis from the company has identified significant potential and demand for advanced software solutions in the international market.

MD Louise Clayton said: “We’re delighted to embark on this new chapter of growth and innovation.

Louise Clayton“Talk Think Do’s US expansion presents us with the opportunity to collaborate with industry leaders, drive technological advancements, and create solutions that empower businesses to thrive in today’s digital landscape.

“Specifically, we see a gap for a truly expert, custom EdTech solution provider.

“We’ve had a lot of success building EdTech for customers in the UK and have some strong partnerships.

“Talk Think Do has been working with the Department for Business and Trade who see education as one of their priority industries to target for export and have identified us as having high export potential.”

The business is also exploring uses for generative AI in their EdTech products, with plans to incorporate large language models (LLMs) over the coming years.

She added: “Ultimately, we also see huge opportunity in Asia and the Middle East and plan to offer in-house 24/7 follow-the-sun support, so we expect further locations to follow.

“While much of our work can be remote, successful projects all hinge on people and relationships.

“We’re looking forward to the challenge of working in a new market, which opens the potential for our UK-based team to live and work in the USA, should they wish to.

“There’s a large, thriving EdTech ecosystem in the US, which is well-supported with great conferences.

“The popular EdTech event, SXSW EDU 2024, is a stone’s throw from our new office in Austin, and the ASU+GSV Summit in San Diego is the leading EdTech conference worldwide, so we’re pleased to be positioned to appear at both.”
