Edify started as all good ventures do – late one night on a dance floor in Inverness. While attending a tech conference in the Scottish city, Martin McDonnell and Chris Bryson realised that they had a lot in common besides growing up in the same neighbourhood of Glasgow. Edify grew out of their shared, fundamental belief that everyone should have access to lifelong training opportunities and be able to level up their skills while working and that immersive technology should be used to deliver this training.
As serial entrepreneurs with backgrounds in immersive content and technology, Chris and Martin were ideally placed to make this vision happen. The result: Sublime Digital, which would become Edify.
From 2017-19, Sublime Digital built bespoke VR training solutions for enterprise clients in Saudi Arabia and across the MENA region. In 2018-19, Sublime was awarded £1m by the UK government to collaborate with the University of Glasgow on Project Mobius, which investigates the use of VR in Higher Education and enterprise settings.
As COVID-19 lockdowns began in the early months of 2020, it became clear that new ways of working were needed. This spurred Chris and Martin to take Sublime to market as Edify.
With immersive solutions spanning from academic application to enterprise, Edify is a learning and skill training platform working to drive wider social change with particular focus on providing Environment, Strategy and Governance (ESG) solutions.
Edify has HQs in Dubai and in Glasgow, and a team that spans the world. As a Work from Anywhere company, Edify has built a truly global and richly diverse team, drawing on creativity and talent from across the globe. Edify's diversity is a real asset in building the future of lifelong learning and skills training.
