NVISNx Selected to Join Ernst & Young Entrepreneurs Access Network Among Elite Black and Latinx Business Leaders


NVISNx [n-vision-x], the leading PaaS information governance, risk and compliance (iGRC) company committed to helping businesses effectively identify and protect all critical data, announces today that it has been hand-selected as a curated member of Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneurs Access Network (EAN) 2021 inaugural cohort. EY’s EAN is a business accelerator and comprehensive executive program designed to help Black- and Latinx-owned companies transcend barriers and scale their businesses. By joining this elite network, NVISNx will gain access to key decision makers and companies that need to protect all critical data and maximize their current security controls to finally stop data breaches. Their membership also grants them access to the EY ecosystem of incubators, alliances, subject-matter resources, industry insights and capital connections. “We’re excited to be in the company of other Black and Latinx business leaders working to grow our companies during this difficult time and to benefit from the expertise EY’s network can provide,” said Glen Day, CEO of NVISNx. “As a prior EY Cybersecurity Partner, I know companies struggle to prevent data breaches that hurt their reputation and diminish their trust. The recent SolarWinds hack requires cyber leaders to shift their approach to “assume that you have already been hacked and they’re still in… now what”? To prevent the next breach, they need a more reliable and automated way to visibly identify and prioritize all critical data- from privacy, intellectual property, sensitive financials or board sensitive communications. Breaches are the digital pandemic to businesses and the problem is simply getting worst.” The NVISNx platform enables complete data inventories and also identifies data that no longer has business value and could be disposed of to reduce risk, decrease the attack surface and save millions in storage costs. As a result of covid’s economic impact, companies are also faced with major budget cuts and must make hard decisions on where to cut. Armed with the resources provided by the EY community, NVISNx will be better positioned to serve our customers risk reduction initiatives by providing data-driven insights as to what to protect and what data could be purged. “EY recognized that NVISNx and the other organizations asked to join the EAN are headed by entrepreneurs who are driving innovation and creating market opportunities with small to mid-sized organizations,” said Lee Henderson, EY America’s Private Leader. “This immersive program will expose Black- and Latinx-owned companies to the firm’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and resources, as well as investors. The program is modeled after EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year™ and Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ programs.” ABOUT NVISNx NVISNx is a powerful PaaS information governance, risk and compliance (iGRC) company committed to helping businesses effectively identify and protect all critical data. Our first-to-market iGRC platform provides an automated, visible and prioritization of data protection and junk file elimination, ensuring your crown jewels are secure while redundant, outdated, trivial, and abandoned files are purged.

Knowledgehook to boost maths attainment across Australia

Stockwood Strategy

Knowledgehook, the world’s most comprehensive mathematics learning platform, has launched in Australia as the nation’s teachers turn a corner in addressing low maths attainment levels for young people. It is now available to schools across the country for children in Year 3 to Year 10 classes, through The Learner First, a consultancy working with schools across Australia. The latest TIMSS (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) found that Australia’s achievement in mathematics has improved since 2015. However, Year 4 mathematics achievement has not changed since 2007. One of the biggest challenges facing educators is to find better ways to meet the learning needs of the many students who fall behind in schools, failing to meet year-level expectations (often year after year) and, as a consequence, become increasingly disengaged. Knowledgehook’s proprietary technology harnesses the power of data to track where students are on their math journey. Their programmes connect a child’s at-home learning with in-school education, providing real-time insights to teachers on learning gaps. This empowers teachers to develop an understanding of the maths concepts related to their students’ challenges, enabling them to adjust instruction and monitor student progress. As Knowledgehook launches across Australia, former Australian Mathematics Curriculum leader, Margaret Bigelow, commented: " Australia's results in international testing are improving. The impact of a national approach to teaching and learning Mathematics has impacted on this improved outcome. Teachers need to be supported to maintain this trajectory of improvement by having the ideas and tools to enhance the engagement of their students to develop critical and creative thinking and further mathematical skills. This will enable students to adjust to the ever-changing demands and challenges of life in the future." “Knowledgehook was inspired by my own struggle with maths as a child,'' explained Co-Founder and CEO of Knowledgehook, Travis Ratnam. “Having the right, personalised guidance makes all the difference and every student deserves to have a teacher who has access to the best pedagogical tools, and parents who have insights into their learning. Our platform is not a game, it pulls together a 360 view on a child’s learning journey enabling people around them to improve the child’s math experience and outcomes. In launching Knowledgehook across Australia, Joanne McEachen, Founder and CEO of The Learner First commented: “I love the fact maths support is available 24/7 so when a learner struggles with a math’s concept, the teacher can access professional learning and development to help support both the learner and the teacher on the spot. Moreover, it helps teachers retrace their approach and identifies what may have been missed allowing them to recover and embed essential skills and concepts. Quite simply, it is what we have been missing for years and it will certainly complement the current trajectory of further improving math’s performance and disposition in Australian students.” Knowledgehook’s AI-enabled platform has grown to support schools across the US, Mexico, and the UK. It is designed to scale across multiple countries and languages developing teacher capacity while engaging students and providing actionable insights for parents. Over the years, Knowledgehook’s research-based solution has garnered industry-leading partnerships and investments from the most recognised global education bodies, notably from the University College of London (UCL), the global leader in education research. Knowledgehook actively collaborates with governments around the world while also working directly with schools and their suppliers, to offer curriculum-aligned solutions. The company currently empowers teachers in more than 100,000 schools. In 2021, it is anticipated the solution will reach 50,000,000 students globally. “We have received growing interest for our technology and expertise to be applied to other subjects and we look forward to expanding our solution to empower more educators and support the learning of students to become the problem-solvers of tomorrow,” Qamar Qureshi, President and Chief Business Officer added. Ends About Knowledgehook Knowledgehook, a leading educational technology company, empowers hundreds of thousands of teachers and parents to collaboratively support the mathematics learning journey of millions of students worldwide. Winner of Google’s Game Changer Award and named Top Disruptor by BNN, its platform analyses student understanding through engaging assessments, providing real-time personalised solutions to close learning gaps between classroom teaching and at-home learning. Designed by leading numeracy and research experts, Knowledgehook’s Instructional Guidance System is known for reinventing how online technology supports education and educators, while inspiring the problem solvers of tomorrow.

Noy Fund and Nofar Energy enter Italy’s Energy Market

Nofar Energy Ltd.

Sunprime, which specializes in the development, certification, and construction of solar energy systems, won a tender for building 30MW rooftop capacity at a secured rate of €90-102 for 20 years. Sunprime is also in the process of licensing and developing a cumulative total of 100 MW Nofar and Noy Fund expect their collaboration in surplus-yield segments will accelerate the development and maximize the Italian market's potential. Nofar Energy today reported it had entered an agreement to invest in Sunprime General Srl via Andromeda Solutions, a company jointly held by Noy Fund (60%) and Nofar Energy (40%). Sunprime Generation develops, certifies, and builds photovoltaic rooftop systems in Italy. The power generated by these systems is sold at a fixed rate for 20 years under tenders published by Italy’s Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks and Environment (ARERA). The partners will invest ~€40 million in shares that account for up to 50% of Sunprime’s share capital subject to attaining certain milestones. Nofar’s report shows the investment will be made via share purchase and allocation, including share convertible loans. The investment will be implemented in several stages, conditioned on winning ARERA’s tender for rooftop systems and the systems' physical readiness. The partners will provide €20 million in a shareholders’ loan to support Sunprime’s development and growth. As of the time of the report, Sunprime won a tender to build photovoltaic rooftop systems with a total throughput of 27.8MW. The electricity generated by the systems will be offered at €90-102 MW/h (€0.09 to 10.2 per Kw/h), a secured rate for 20 years. Sunprime also plans to bid on other projects published in 2021-2022 to build systems and sell the power generated by them at the rate stipulated in the various tenders (also secured for 20 years). Pini Cohen, Ran Shelach, and Gil-Ad Boshwitz, directors at Noy Fund, commented, “The investment in Sunprime adds to other strategic investments Noy Fund made in renewable energies in general and the high-growth niche market of solar roofs, in particular. The Fund had identified Sunprime as offering the most promising potential to achieve a breakthrough in the current phase of Italy’s solar roofs segment. |The new is aligned with the strategic thinking that has guided us in our successful investment in Nofar.” Nadav Tene, CEO of Nofar Energy, said, “Nofar Energy and its partner, Noy Fund, venture into Italy, a well-developed electricity market with multiple energy sources. The Italian government’s decision to increase the power generated from renewable energy sources to 55% of Italy’s power consumption played an important role in our investment decision. In line with Nofar’s signature approach, we focus on projects with a potential for surplus value and ROI. In Italy, too, each MW we generate will be worth more from the first tender. The transaction with Sunprime, a growing local platform, is expected to create Nofar and Noy Fund a significant potential for surplus yield.” Italy’s well-developed electricity market boasts numerous energy sources, including natural gas, hydroelectric facilities, renewable energies, and coal. In 2017, Italy’s government announced the National Energy Strategy, committing to phase out coal for energy production by 2025 and increase the share of electricity from renewable energy to 28% of its energy consumption by 2030 and 55% by 2030. In 2019, Italy set specific targets for renewable energies, including reaching an installed capacity of 50GW from solar energy and 18GW from wind energy by 2030. Noy Fund is Israel's largest infrastructure fund. To date, it had raised ~ILS 7 billion in three funds and other entities and is now in advanced stages of mobilizing its fourth fund of over ILS 2 billion. Noy Fund incorporates most of Israel's major institutional investors, including Altshuler Shaham, the Phoenix, Menora, Clal, Migdal, Amitim, Meitav Dash, Psagot, Halman Aldubi, Poalim Capital Markets, and more. Nofar Energy, which issued stock on TASE in December 2020, develops, certifies, builds, and operates photovoltaic systems, mainly in the dual segment (stored and rooftop power). As an engineering company, Nofar leverages its in-house capabilities to achieve operating flexibility and other benefits in this segment, which features surplus yields projects. The company translates wins into initiating, building and running projects with surplus yields and “megawatts that are worth more”. Contact Details Dikla Ivry Pardnoy +972 52-380-4085
