Tuatara is working with McGraw Hill Higher Edu­ca­tion, and is in the “final stages” of signing another major U.S. pub­lisher, he said.

The ulti­mate mis­sion, according to a news release, is to help users “get the most from the vast amounts of infor­ma­tion becoming avail­able every day” and “rev­o­lu­tionize the dig­ital learning experience.”

Xicay says he launched the com­pany in December 2010 after seeing how frag­mented the stu­dent work­flow could be during his time as a stu­dent at North­eastern Uni­ver­sity.

Tuatara has been devel­oping GilaPad ever since, and now employs 12 full-​​time at its office on Con­gress Street. The com­pany plans to hire five “mar­keting ambas­sadors” in the next few weeks, who will visit schools in the area and intro­duce the product to stu­dents, Xicay said.
