Founded by Zoe Milne and David Savill, LoopLearn automates the student roll marking process in schools using computer vision technology.
With decades of experience in EduTech, the Looplearn founders joined the Accelerator program in 2018. The team quickly established trial partnerships with various schools across Victoria and were able to demonstrate that their solution would not only return time to teachers but was ultimately safer and more accurate than the current manual roll process.
The technology and findings received significant exposure and discussions through many mainstream media channels, and by the conclusion of the program, the team had grown hiring their first employee, expanded to have a presence in NSW as well as Victoria, and were also a successful recipient of the Commonwealth Accelerating Commercialisation Grant (of $480,000).
Zoe believes that technology can enhance every individual’s ability to teach and learn. Her entrepreneurial spirit has her naturally joining the dots on how tech can solve the education industries most incumbent problems and allow students to truly excel. She is currently Co-Founder of LoopLearn, a company focused on using the latest advances in AI to help teachers support students. Zoe’s previous work in global education technology companies grew her skills in business strategy and execution, product management, people leadership, and international market development. As someone who loves to live life outside of her comfort zone, she relishes building a first mover EdTech company set to improve education delivery globally.
David previously founded the EduTech business Edumate, a leading K12 SaaS platform. David has deep leadership and technical experience having worked in EduTech across local and international markets in a unique mix of leadership, business development and technology roles helping grow revenue and drive organisational change. David brings a lifelong passion for EduTech with a keen commercial awareness and impetus. In 2018 the start-up call burned within David once more and led him to co-found LoopLearn - a cutting-edge AI/SaaS offering helping schools keep students safe and solve what is an often under-appreciated but significant issue for schools.
