Friends of Beepboop: December 2022
Role-play strategy announced at Techstars Demo Day. New team member trained at Dartmouth. Pitch at J.P. Morgan in NYC.
Techstars Demo Day
After 90 days of intensive prep in the Techstars accelerator program, Beepboop presented at the Techstars Demo Day at the historic Howard Theater in Washington, D.C.
How we’re positioning ourselves:
Beepboop is a global platform that brings people together to learn through role-play subjects that can't be taught with books.
For people-facing jobs that require us to think on our feet, the most common study methods available (books, lectures, apps, etc.) don't prepare us for using our knowledge in real life.
Beepboop is the Roblox of role-play. We are a global platform that streamlines lesson creation, simplifies teaching, and brings people together to learn through role-play. Role-play is learning by acting out parts in real-word scenarios with real people. We've taken a role-play teaching technique from Dartmouth College, proven to help students learn 40% faster, and made it scalable so it’s accessible for all students.
Newest Team Member: Raul Lopez Acero
Please welcome our newest team member, Raul Lopez Acero, who trained and worked with the Dartmouth College legend, Professor John Rassias for 7 years:
Raul has run international workshops training thousands of teachers in the United States, Mexico and China
Before joining Beepboop, Raul trained Beepboop’s CEO, Devon Saliga and ~40% of Beepboop’s instructors in person at Dartmouth College
Raul has taught ESL for over 30 years and Spanish for 13 years
“Raul is the most inspirational, talented, and passionate language instructor I’ve ever had. He has an amazing skill of making students feel comfortable speaking their first words in a new language and then getting them to fluency fast. He makes large classes feel extremely personal. If through Beepboop and our technology we can empower the world’s teachers to be even just a fraction of how effective and compassionate Raul is, I am going to die a happy man. I’m so excited. We have the perfect team to transform how language education is delivered globally.”
