Find the right experiences for your project from a portal's private marketplace

Updated over a week ago

If your company holds a portal pass for any given institution’s portal, you gain access to its exclusive private marketplace, where you can explore a curated selection of experiences tailored to connect with projects from companies within the network. While retaining the same search and filter functionalities, submitting requests within the portal marketplace significantly heightens the chances of finding a suitable match, as your company already holds recognition within the portal's network.

  • Build long-lasting relationships with educators who host experiences regularly.

  • Gain exclusive access to an institution's experiences and network of educators and learners.


Saved searches

Have specific criteria for experiences you're seeking to fulfill? Search for that criteria in the open marketplace and save your search. You'll easily re-apply the exact same search criteria with a click of a button when you revisit the open marketplace, and we'll send you new experiences that meet those criteria straight to your inbox as they become available.


Once you obtain a portal pass and start browsing the portal’s private marketplace. we'll learn about your preferred experiences and send you tailored recommendations straight to your inbox as they become available. Easily adjust the frequency of these recommendations or turn them on or off as needed from your user settings.

Match requests

Once you have found the right experience, or an educator has found your project and believes it is a great fit for their experience, you will be able to utilize the match request tools and workflows to:

  • Have a private conversation with the educator where you can discuss details, book meetings, and have video conference calls using the message center.

  • Propose and negotiate changes to the project scope and details and easily see what has been proposed vs the original project description

  • Use double-sided acceptance for match requests, ensuring mutual satisfaction with all details before progressing further.
