Games and Learning featured the launch of Noodle Markets as well as the company’s recent $3M seed series funding round, writing:
“[CEO Nicole] Neal told gamesandlearning.org that now is the time for a service like the marketplace, noting, ‘It is tremendously challenging and costly for vendors to connect with new prospective K-12 customers, and the cost of education sales and marketing ultimately drives up prices in the education materials market. New suppliers struggle the most with these realities. We believe that our purchasing solutions help level the playing field for vendors, making it easier for the best products – new and old – to find a market.’
She was quick to add that, ‘K-12 vendors can currently add their products and services to Noodle Markets free of charge. In recent weeks, we have seen a number of game-based learning / gamified learning products register, and we hope to see many others join before we open our doors to K-12 educators in the months to come.’”
