‘We have actually seen our company triple in size such has been the move to online education’
Makematic is a dedicated educational video producer working with some of the biggest brands in the world, including Amazon Studios, Adobe and Oxford University Press.
Launched in 2016 by Mark Nagurski and Catherine Davies, the company addresses the need for high quality educational video content in response to the growth of online teaching and learning.
Today it creates hundreds of videos annually. It has also launched a new licensing and distribution business with licensees in both the US and Australia which involves the licensing of co-produced content on a non-exclusive basis to third-party educational content providers as well as government partners.
Over 60% of its revenues are from the US while its growth over the past year has allowed it to triple the size of its team to over 60 full-time staff and contractors.
The Derry-based company is now a fully international operation, with offices in Belfast and team members working remotely in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Spain, South Africa and the United States.
Catherine Davies, co-founder, Makematic said: “It’s amazing to win this award. We’ve just been concentrating on business and getting the right products to the right people but have seen our company triple in size such has been the move to online education. It’s very rewarding to have our work recognised.”
