*Memphis, TN — Stefen White, the Founder and CEO Allinwon (an educational technology startup firm) that’s located at the FedEx Institute of Technology and who is also working towards completing his Master’s degree in Instruction and Curriculum Leadership at the University of Memphis.

He and the other co-founders — Cadarrius McGlown (Chief Technology Officer), Aaron Chakraborty (Chief Information Officer/Chief Marketing Officer) (CIO/CMO), Dale Harris (Chief Media Officer), Ian White (Chief Gaming Officer) and more — are focused on providing an educational technology solution called “self” to every “learner” in K-12, Higher-Ed, and adults post school/in the professional environment.

“Self” is a solution that’s made up of artificial intelligence, a video game, blockchain technology, and leading educational technology tools and strategies that are carefully selected, in support of research, to boost student gains/outcomes unlike any solution ever before.

“The Problems that We’re Solving”

Globally, students are failing to reach mastery level in all subjects.

Currently, Allinwon is focused on the frustrations of a global education that can often times reflect a factory-style, one-size-fits-all education system and style of teaching and learners in the K-12 system that are expected to learn at the same pace as their peers or colleagues.

A major goal is to provide as much transparency as possible to the most influential stakeholders in a most engaging and effective way.

The Effects

As a result, schools are losing money, there’s an epidemic of adult lifetime underachievement, and an almost unquantifiable cost to human capital and production.

Our Solution

The integration of artificial intelligence and games gives students the opportunity to build proficiency in a fun and engaging way. Allinwon’s “Self” is utilizing the following aspects to make up our educational technology solution “Self”:

* Research
* Entrepreneurial Lesson Plans
* A video game
* Artificial Intelligence
* Blockchain technology and more

And to ensure accuracy in development, they are hosting our very first Allinwon-a-thon, which is our very own version of a hack-a-thon, at the beginning of October 2018, and their website will have the details about it coming soon.

Revenue Streams

They are seeking to further establish relationships and contractual agreements within the Educational community to secure K-12 Educational Technology contracts, a partnership with the TN Dept.of Education, and related-grants. School districts have a number of eLearning alternatives to choose from, however, there are not many that incorporate games and artificial intelligence into the learning management system. In addition, the are not any eLearning companies based in Tennessee. They are poised to take advantage of our unique position in the market of southeastern U.S.

Members of the Team

Allinwon’s leadership team is carefully selected to combine each member’s knowledge and skill to build an amazing company and product. They are committed to increasing global reading and financial literacy to 100 percent in grades K-12, higher-ed, and other professional industries. Stefen’s background in business and education allows him to bring insight into the education needs of students. Their combined expertise allows them to actively develop a program based upon our customers and potential customers’ needs.

“Why we’re seeking Investment and contractual opportunities”

As with any company, there are organizational expenses and needs. Allinwon really appreciates the feedback do their best to incorporate it into what they do. From team salaries to “Self” development, Allinwon would love to establish a partnership with you and collaborate on some of the world’s most exciting stuff.

Recent Accomplishments

Over the past year, they, Allinwon, have:

* Earned/Awarded the Crews Center for Entrepreneurships $5,000 Seed Fund.

The Crews Center for Entrepreneurship encourages and supports a culture of entrepreneurship at the University of Memphis, helping faculty and student entrepreneurs as they focus their passions and commercialize their ideas, research, and inventions into the foundations of successful companies.

* Won the Educational award at the ETH Memphis hack-a-thon.

Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.

These apps run on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property.

This enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middleman or counterparty risk.

* Been selected as a participating startup company (1 out of 6) (represented the University of Memphis), for Launch TNs 36|86 Student Edition Pitch Competition and Conference.

Launch Tennessee is a public-private partnership that supports entrepreneurs from ideation to exit. We’re guided by a vision of making Tennessee the most startup-friendly state in the country, so that entrepreneurs stay here to build companies and create jobs.

They initiated new relationships and further expounded upon prior existing ones that included Tennessee’s Governor Bill Haslam, and Bob Rolfe, TN Department of Economic and Community Development

* Stefen White and Allinwon also had a feature article published on them in the Spring 2018 University of Memphis magazine titled “The ABCs of Entrepreneurships”: https://issuu.com/univofmemphis/docs/uofm_spring_magazine_2018_single_pa/54
