Kelvyn Hicks, Founder and CEO

EdTech Free Trials was founded by Kelvyn Hicks who has had over 25 years’ experience in the education sector, in many geographies.

A substantial part of this time (10 years) was spent at Microsoft, he started off as the UK e-learning business manager, then was the UK school’s business manager and finally was responsible for the school’s sector across 79 countries in the Middle East and Africa, based in Istanbul.

In addition to this, Kelvyn has built and run his own successful business’s and been responsible for the international expansion of many EdTech start ups.

In Hicks’s own words 

“The sale of products and services within the Education sector, especially in the UK has become very high pressured and in a lot of cases, unpleasant.  Potential buyers are being subjected to intense and relentless sales and marketing activities and campaigns, which has taken the joy away from exploring exciting new products and services. It has also had a negative effect on sales of EdTech, with many fantastic products and services remaining undiscovered.

We wanted to turn this around by creating a safe, simple environment where buyers can connect with suppliers without losing an arm when enquiring about a product or service.  Buyers can now get a completely free trial with no strings attached and no double glazing sales tactics!

Please enjoy the experience!”
