The journey begins (actually the journey continues!!)
The story of Coster Services really starts in 1989, even though Coster Services was only incorporated in 2021. Thirty-two years ago I began looking for interesting K-12 EdTech companies I could work with to help them enter new markets. One of the companies I began working with in 1990 was the Follett Software Company. My journey with Follett became a huge part of my career as I held a full-time position with Follett from 1993-2020 !
In 2020 I decided it was time to continue with the roots of the journey I started in 1989. Particularly as I knew there would be companies with great products that could help schools with the many challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Now with my son, Patrick, joining me on this continuation we are proud to offer two complimentary parts to our business:
- Sales, marketing and business intelligence to support companies wishing to use our knowledge to get started or revise strategies in the K-12 EdTech space in Canada, the US, the UK and with international schools around the world.
- A Value-Added-Reseller (VAR) in the US, Canada and for international schools, again in K-12 EdTech market.
To meet the needs of companies looking at the UK market we have teamed with The Wisdom Partnership (TWP).
TWP is offering an unparalleled trove of knowledge to help companies in the UK EdTech world.
This week we will be making two announcements about companies we are working with to bring their products and services to Canada and around the world. I believe these products and services will be very helpful for schools, as educators and parents look for a multitude of ways to help with learning loss due to the pandemic.
So please stay tuned and follow Coster Services if you wish to find out more!
