Edge Factor is proud to announce the launch of their NEW 2019/2020 Platform for schools and businesses. 

The NEW Edge Factor platform provides students, parents, and job seekers with information to launch a rewarding career following Edge Factor’s timeline of understanding.  The 2019/2020 platform categorizes Edge Factor content into four key zones; Inspiration, Exploration, Preparation, and Connection.  

The Inspiration zone features award-winning films, documentaries, and TV shows! It’s all about using the power of storytelling to inspire audiences to explore career pathways and discover how STEAM comes alive in the real world.


The Exploration zone includes high impact videos on industries and specific career profiles. With hundreds of career exploration tools, this zone empowers students, parents, and job seekers to discover diverse opportunities.



The Preparation zone contains deep libraries of videos and interactive tools that connect STEAM to the real world, instill soft skills and promote educational programs. You can now create profiles that promote your school’s programs to local students and parents!



The Connection zone is a one-stop-shop for people to browse profiles of real-world companies, careers, schools, and training programs. 



With the use of Collections, Edge Factor is able to create a playlist of information that will take students, parents, and job seekers on a journey of career discovery, providing them with the right information at the right time. 

Visit Edge Factors NEW TouchPoint studio! We offer a Touchpoint Studio Training 101 that will show how easy it is to get started connecting with students, parents, and job seekers in your local community.
