ND Startup Be More Colorful Joins Elite Nationwide Cohort through SETDA Emerging Partners Program

FARGO, ND — Be More Colorful, an award-winning immersive media and virtual reality video production studio, proudly announces its flagship edtech product, CareerViewXR, has been selected to participate in the State Educational Technology Directors Association's (SETDA) Emerging Partners program for 2023. 

CareerViewXR was chosen from a highly competitive pool of over 40 international educational technology startups. It is one of only five to be selected to join the prestigious program, offering a testament to the innovation and potential impact of Be More Colorful's immersive educational technology. 

"Being chosen to participate in the SETDA Emerging Partners program is a tremendous honor," said Matt Chaussee, CEO of Be More Colorful. "Being recognized as one of the most innovative startups in edtech is an affirmation of our team’s dedication to creating engaging, immersive learning experiences and an endorsement of the hard work and support we have received from educators, career services professionals, industry leaders, and students from around North Dakota." 

The SETDA Emerging Partners Program is designed to offer edtech startups opportunities to be seen and heard by state and national technology and digital learning leaders. The program provides insights and advice on public relations, sales, marketing, and venture capital from SETDA's channel partners, as well as networking and showcasing opportunities at SETDA's national conferences and events to help participants prepare for nationwide PreK-12 partnerships. 

SETDA's Emerging Partners program aligns perfectly with Be More Colorful's mission to help students make informed career decisions by bringing the jobsite into the classroom. This partnership will provide a platform for CareerViewXR to showcase its immersive field trip and job shadow experiences to an influential audience of educational technology leaders and potential collaborators to ensure a nationwide impact. 

"This national recognition underscores the incredible advantage of building a business in North Dakota, where a unique interconnectedness and spirit of collaboration have greatly accelerated our ability to make a substantial impact in field of educational technology" added Chaussee. 

CareerViewXR will be introduced during SETDA's annual Emerging Trends Forum in early June alongside four other Emerging Partners cohort startups including: Connected Class (Florida), Infini-D Learning (Utah), XRTerra (Massachusetts), and Curipod (Norway).
