Canadian International School Team and Empowered to Launch Online Offering

Empowered Startups and a team from The Canadian International School in Vietnam (CIS) are preparing to launch an online school to make Canadian curriculum and schooling options available throughout ASEAN countries, other international markets, and potentially remote locations within Canada. The team will launch the venture and build the online platform from Vancouver, Canada. Through leveraging CIS’ ongoing success in Vietnam, they will extend the new venture’s reach throughout ASEAN countries and parts further a field, to those for whom a brick and mortar boarding school option is inappropriate.

“The Canadian International School in Vietnam is well-recognized and global-minded institution. Its leadership team and faculty are committed to their students success.”, noted Alex George, Senior Trade Commissioner of Canada, based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Empowered Startups’ incubator in Vancouver, Canada is keen to welcome the team from CIS into its portfolio later this winter. Empowered Startups brings experience in building online curriculum and training platforms, and in mentoring transnational innovators launching new innovative ventures in new jurisdictions. With offices in North America, Asia and Europe, Empowered Startups partners with research and development institutes in global startup ecosystems, and guides innovative ventures in accessing international markets. Empowered Startups has international expertise in advancing the state of global startup.
