"This is more than just a business opportunity to me. I was one of those kids that learned through movement and engaging with content. We appreciate the support of SC Launch as we bring ActivEd to classrooms and help children to learn in a fun, healthy way."
Julian Reed, Furman University Professor and ActivEd Founder
Founded by Furman University professor of health sciences Julian Reed, ActivEd is an educational software company aimed at giving educators interactive lessons that incorporate movement into learning for pre-K through grade school. ActivEd cites more than 15 years of research examining the connection between movement and academic achievement, cognitive ability and health.
The company has received investment, mentoring and support services as a Client Company.
“At ActivEd, we believe learning is physical and research is clear. Kids who move more, perform better academically,” said Reed. “Having the support of SC Launch to move ActivEd forward is helping us to expand our software and reach for South Carolinians and children everywhere.”
