American Crane’s Karen Norheim is Partnering with Youtopian on the Launch of Their NYOUGENE to Help Create Compelling Education Experiences When and Where Employees Need Them

American Crane and Equipment Corporation’s Karen Norheim, President and Chief Operating Officer, has partnered with Youtopian on the launch of their NYOUGENE platform, a new education initiative for upskilling workers.

Youtopian, a leading innovation company, is excited to announce the launch of a new education initiative to complement their existing portfolio of artificial intelligence (AI)-based technology solutions. By creating the world’s first AI and extended reality (XR) powered platform, codenamed NYOUGENE, Youtopian will capitalize on the desperate need for upskilling for existing and new workers. Co-founder, Dr. DP Prakash, former executive with IBM and Global Foundries, sees an enormous opportunity, “Companies need an efficient way to create just in time education while employees are on the job. Today we are excited to announce we are launching NYOUGENE to help create compelling education experiences when and where employees need them. Our core philosophy is centered on you as we named the company on your behalf honoring the person in front.”

Harnessing the energy of key partners, Karen Norheim, President and COO of American Crane and Equipment Corporation and Paul Marca, Youtopian’s Chief Education Evangelist and former Stanford University Associate Vice Provost, Youtopian has already demonstrated the technology in corporate settings and is keen to expand its efforts to pioneering partners. CoCEO Lisa Sibilia is awe-inspired about this initiative, stating, “We see an amazing future to innovate at the speed of change and accelerate learning to challenge the experience gap. Working with Karen and Paul along with former Disney Imagineers/Founders and cross-industry partners, Youtopian is gearing up to raise the bar on what is possible or deemed ‘impossible’.” 

The new platform will not only provide a repository for self-generated content, it will also contain original content, immersive experiences and the opportunity to build a new frontier for the global industry market across enterprise and education. The emboldened plan will be executed by top world professionals where industry pain points connect to proven solutions, open innovation and pioneering field research.
