Amesite Announces Advanced A.I. Driven Electric Vehicle Courses For Michigan’s Third-Largest Institution of Higher Learning, Wayne State University
AmesiteInc., (Nasdaq: AMST), an artificial intelligence software company providing the most advanced A.I. powered online learning ecosystems for business, higher education and K-12, announced today an expansion of its partnership with Wayne State University, Michigan’s third-largest institution of higher learning. Created and delivered by Amesite, and targeting its alumni and members of the WSU community, the university will now offer six-week on-line, A.I. powered certification courses covering the following content:
Autonomous Vehicle Technologies
Electric Vehicle Technologies
Mobility as a Service
Programming for Autonomous Systems
Dr. Farshad Fotouhi, Dean of Engineering at Wayne State University, stated: “We chose to partner with Amesite because they offer the most advanced online learning platform in the market today. The feedback from our students and instructors has been overwhelmingly positive.”
Dr. Ann Marie Sastry, founder and CEO of Amesite, commented, “Even the most recently-graduated engineering cohorts did not train deeply on electrification technologies, and the industry has a critical need for talent. The fact that Michigan’s third largest university with 27,000 students and over 250,000 alumni, chose Amesite to create and deliver courses in the electric-vehicle industry is indicative of the quality of our A.I. driven platform and our ability to create exceptional and innovative content. We are extremely well-positioned for growth, addressing an enormous market opportunity, as we continue to roll out what we believe is the best A.I.-driven online learning platform in the industry.”

The entire automotive industry is transforming as it delivers electric, autonomous and connected vehicles. Sales of electric vehicles now top 2 million annually as part of a $151 billion global electric mobility market. The global autonomous vehicle market is projected to be valued at $54 billion.
The new courses will launch on February 22. People interested in learning more about the certificates are encouraged to visit: https://wayne.amesite.com/

5 Reasons Amesite is the Next Big Thing in EdTech
01 Market Growth — COVID-19 accelerated the growth of an already expanding edtech industry. Expected to reach $374 billion by 2026, the elearning market holds an opportunity for massive growth.
02 Leadership — Dr. Ann Marie Sastry is a seasoned CEO, who successfully sold her last company, Sakti3, for $90 million. She brings a wide range of expertise to the company from her experiences in academia and business.
03 Multiple Verticals — Niche is the name of the game among most elearning platforms. Not Amesite. Their unique approach allows them to tackle multiple verticals in the marketplace; from k-12 education, to higher learning, to aftermarket skills and branded corporate training.
04 The AI Edge — In addition to all the other features the platform offers, the most interesting is their machine learning capabilities. Amesite boasts that, through their proprietary AI, their learning platforms have the ability to self-update and enhance the user experience automatically.
05 Platform — As Dr. Sastry likes to point out in interviews, “a good platform is easy to use and hard to code.” One of the big selling points here is the client’s ability to “plug and play”. As long as the content is ready, the courses practically build themselves.
Shaking up the EdTech Space
Amesite (NASDAQ: AMST) is improving the way the world learns, through artificial-intelligence software products. Their mission is to make learning more affordable, accessible, and engaging using disruptive technologies and offering superior service.
It is Amesite’s belief that all learning communities deserve to have access to the most cutting-edge tech and the most up-to-date content.
But who are they working with now?
This edtech company has made inroads in multiple market verticals, including K-12, higher education, and corporate learning. Customer highlights include; Peru School District, BOCES, and Ford.
Amesite (NASDAQ: AMST) is poised to take advantage of the quickly growing elearning market. Using superior technology and services, they likely will build upon previous success and scale their platforms to suit market demand. This disruptive company is right on the edge of massive growth.
Even before COVID-19 caused worldwide shutdowns, businesses and schools had begun adopting remote learning and working solutions. The global edtech market was on track to reach $374 billion by 2026, and will likely get there sooner due to pandemic related factors.
Amesite (NASDAQ: AMST) allows businesses and schools to launch their customized learning platforms faster and cheaper, all while including their AI-driven functionality.
Of course Amesite isn’t the only player in the elearning realm. You’ll likely be familiar with companies like Chegg, Blackboard, Coursera, and dozens of others. It’s a big pond. But due to certain competitive advantages, we think Amesite will be a big fish.
As you can see, Amesite’s platform offers several features that their competitors lack. Especially useful is their data-driven feedback that allows course managers to adapt the content to maximize student/employee success.
“It’s absolutely imperative that we offer courses that prepare our children for the future, which will require that we innovate in our curricula,” Peru Central School District Superintendent Dr. Thomas Palmer said. “…We appreciate the clean design, ease of use and technical capabilities of the Amesite platform, and are pleased and committed to using it in our STEM and workforce programs, to support our teachers and students with the best technology available.”
Some of the things that make Amesite stand out to us are the ability to have courses up and running in 24 hours, coupled with their pay-by-the-slice pricing model. Amesite is also committed to designing a platform that is “no more than two clicks deep”, which is to say that proctors and students don’t need any extensive training to use the interface.
Using mostly social outreach, Amesite has been able to achieve a relatively high level of recognition without spending too much capital. They have a strong social media presence, boasting 13K Twitter followers, and Dr. Sastry has done a lot to champion the brand in interviews.
The money raised in Amesite’s IPO was almost entirely earmarked for growth, and as Amesite expands their sales team, we can expect more contracts to be won over time. The nature of education contracts mean that revenue will lag, but once the initial push is done to hire sales staff who can execute, the expansion of won business should make up for the temporary burn increase.
Building Out Existing Contracts; Best Bet for Growth
Like with many businesses, a small contract executed well can lead to larger jobs in the future.
Through the Champlain Valley Educational Services Board of Cooperative Educational Services (CVES BOCES), Amesite has the ability to scale their platform to school districts throughout the state.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer our products through the CVES BOCES to the Peru Central School District, and now, to any of the more than 600 public school districts in New York State. The cost-sharing provided by the State of New York puts teachers and students first and helps every district in the State advance their technology through streamlined, cooperative purchasing,” said Amesite Founder and CEO Dr. Ann Marie Sastry.²
Success in this area should carry over to other states, and puts Amesite in a favorable position. Coupled with their successful launch of a pilot education program for Ford Motors, we’re betting these contracts are just the start.
The edtech space, like so many other markets, has been transformed by outside factors. Big shake ups, like we’ve experienced during 2020, typically show us who has staying power and who will be a flash in the pan. Amesite has managed to develop a superior platform, offer excellent service, and has even won multiple Best Workplace awards. As more companies and schools make the move to online learning, we’ll see who can capitalize on the shift.

Amesite is shaping up to be a rapidly growing presence in the Learning Platform SaaS market. When thinking about their potential as an investment we think several things separate them from their competitors.
They have demonstrated superior AI technology through the ability to have courses up and running within 24 hours, as well as update course content automatically. Their platform offers intuitive features and helpful analytics that enhance user experience.
Amesite has existing contracts that will continue to bring in revenue, while providing the inroads for expansion. Their platforms boast a 98% retention rate, so every contract won, is likely to be reliable revenue for the foreseeable future.
The potential for growth in the AI Cloud Platform SaaS market is hard to overstate. By 2025 the AI market is projected to grow to $126B and the online edecuation should be at $319.2B. Meanwhile the SaaS for business market is projected to grow to $623B by 2023. We feel pretty good about a company that sits in the middle of that Vinn Diagram.
The Future of Learning
The pandemic greatly accelerated the adoption of technologies that enable the continuance of everyday life. One of the markets impacted the greatest was absolutely cloud-based content creation for the purposes of education. Amesite’s AI-driven software, exceptional customer service, rockstar CEO, and impressive product offerings make them stand out. Ultimately, we think Amesite is going to be a big player in the e-learning space, with room to expand even further as the industry grows.
Who are we and what do we do?
We are paid advertisers, also known as stock touts or stock promoters, who disseminate favorable information (the “Information”) about publicly traded companies (the “Profiled Issuers”).
How is the Information published?
We publish the Information on our Website, in newsletters, audio services, live interviews, featured “research” reports, on message boards and in email communications for specific time periods that are agreed upon between us and the Profiled Issuer or third party paying us.
Our publication of the Information is known as a “Campaign”.
Will everyone receive the Information at the same time?
No. The Information may be sent to potential investors at different times that are minutes, hours, days or even weeks apart.
How is a potential investor impacted if he receives the Information later than other investors?
Typically, the trading volume and price of a Profiled Issuer’s securities increases after the Information is provided to the first group of investors. Therefore, the later an investor receives the Information, the more likely it is that he will suffer increased trading losses if he purchases the securities of a Profiled Issuer.
What will happen to the shares that we hold during the Campaign?
We will sell the shares we hold while we tell investors to purchase during the Campaign.
What will happen when the Campaign ends?
Most, if not all, of the Profiled Issuers are penny stocks that are illiquid and whose securities are subject to wide fluctuations in trading price and volume. During the Campaign the trading volume and price of the securities of each Profiled Issuer will likely increase significantly. When the Campaign ends, the volume and price of the Profiled Issuer will likely decrease dramatically. As a result, investors who purchase during the Campaign and hold shares of the Profiled Issuer when the Campaign ends will probably lose most, if not all, of their investment.
Why do we publish only favorable Information?
We only publish favorable information because we are compensated to publish only favorable information.
Why don’t we publish negative Information?
We don’t publish negative information because we are not paid to publish negative information. We are paid to publish only favorable information.
Is the Information complete, accurate, truthful or reliable?
No. The Information is a snapshot that provides only positive information about the Profiled Issuers. The Information consists of only positive content. We do not and will not publish any negative information about the Profiled Issuers; accordingly, investors should consider the Information to be one-sided and not balanced, complete, accurate, truthful or reliable.
What we do not do?
We do not publish negative information about the Profiled Issuers. We do not verify or confirm any portion of the Information. We do not conduct any due diligence, nor do we research any aspect of the Information including the completeness, accuracy, truthfulness or reliability of the Information. We do not review the Profiled Issuers’ financial condition, operations, business model, management or risks involved in the Profiled Issuer’s business or an investment in a Profiled Issuer’s securities.
Where does the Information come from?
The Information is provided to us by the Profiled Issuers and/or the person who hires us. We may also obtain the Information from publicly available sources such as the OTC Markets, Google, NASDAQ, NYSE, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Edgar database or other available public sources.
If we say we make “stock picks,” are those picks our own?
No, they are not. We are compensated to advertise the securities we are told to advertise.
What will happen if an investor relies on the Information?
If an investor relies on the Information in making an investment decision it is highly probable that the investor will lose most, if not all, of his or her investment. Investors should not rely on the Information to make an investment decision.
Who pays us to publish the Information?
The source of our compensation varies depending upon the particular circumstances of the Campaign. We are compensated by the Profiled Issuers, third party shareholders and other parties related to the Profiled Issuers such as officers and/or directors who will derive a financial or other benefit from an increase in the trading price and/or volume of a Profiled Issuer’s securities.
The nature and amount of compensation we receive for publishing the Information about each Profiled Issuer and our ownership of each Profiled Issuer is set forth below under the heading captioned, “What we are compensated”.

No. There are numerous risks associated with each Profiled Issuer and investors should undertake a full review of each Profiled Issuer with the assistance of their financial, legal, and tax advisers prior to purchasing the securities of any Profiled Issuer.

We do not publish any negative information whatsoever about the Profiled Issuers;
We may own a Profiled Issuer’s securities that we acquired from the Profiled Issuer, third parties or from our own open market purchases before, during or after the Campaign and we may sell these securities during the Campaign while publishing the (favorable) information that instructs investors to purchase. Our selling of a Profiled Issuer’s securities will likely cause investors to suffer losses;
A short time after we acquire a Profiled Issuer’s securities, we may publish the (favorable) Information about the Profiled Issuer advising others, including you, to purchase; and while doing so, we may sell the Profiled Issuer’s securities we acquired during our public dissemination of the Information causing us to profit while you suffer a loss;
Parties holding a Profiled Issuer’s securities, including those who engage our services and/or compensate us, will sell their shares of the Profiled Issuer while we are publishing the (favorable) Information.
Who is responsible if an investor relies on the Information?
The investor. We are not responsible or liable for any person’s use of the Information or any success or failure that is directly or indirectly related to such person’s use of the Information because we have specifically stated that the information is not reliable and should not be relied upon for any purpose. We are not responsible for omissions or errors in the Information, and we are not responsible for actions taken by any person who relies upon the Information.
What do we urge potential investors to do?
We urge Investors to conduct their own in-depth investigation of the Profiled Issuers with the assistance of their legal, tax and investment advisers. An investor’s review of the Information should include but not be limited to the Profiled Issuer’s financial condition, operations, management, products or services, trends in the industry and risks that may be material to the profiled Issuer’s business and other information he and his advisers deem material to an investment decision. An investor’s review should include, but not be limited to a review of available public sources and information received directly from the Profiled Issuers or from websites such as Google, OTC Markets, NASDAQ, NYSE, www.sec.gov or other available public sources.
Why is this Disclaimer being provided?
We are providing you with this disclaimer because we are publishing advertisements about penny stocks. Because we are paid to disseminate the Information to the public about securities, we are required by the securities laws including Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to specifically disclose our compensation as well as other important information, This information includes that we may hold, as well as purchase and sell, the securities of a Profiled Issuer before, during and after we publish favorable Information about the Profiled Issuer. We may urge investors to purchase the securities of a Profiled Issuer while we sell our own shares.
The anti-fraud provisions of federal and state securities laws require us to inform you that we may engage in buying and selling of Profiled Issuer’s securities before, during and after the Campaigns.What are other risks that investors should be aware of?
Any investment in the Profiled Issuers involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty. The securities may be subject to extreme volume and price volatility, especially during the Campaigns. Favorable past performance of a Profiled Issuer does not guarantee future results. If you purchase the securities of the Profiled Issuers, you should be prepared to lose your entire investment. Some of the risks involved in purchasing securities of the Profiled Issuers include, but are not limited to the risks stated below.
We do not endorse, independently verify or assert the truthfulness, completeness, accuracy or reliability of the Information. We conduct no due diligence or investigation whatsoever of the Information or the Profiled Issuers and we do not receive any verification from the Profiled Issuer regarding the Information we disseminate.
If we publish any percentage gain of a Profiled Issuer from the previous day close in the Information, it is not and should not be construed as an indication that the future stock price or future operational results will reflect gains or otherwise prove to be advantageous to your investment.
The Information may contain statements asserting that a Profiled Issuer’s stock price has increased over a certain period of time which may reflect an arbitrary period of time, and is not predictive or of any analytical quality; as such, you should not rely upon the (favorable) Information in your analysis of the present or future potential of a Profiled Issuer or its securities.
The Information should not be interpreted in any way, shape, form or manner whatsoever as an indication of the Profiled Issuer’s future stock price or future financial performance.
You may encounter difficulties determining what, if any, portions of the Information are material or non-material, making it all the more imperative that you conduct your own independent investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities with the assistance of your legal, tax and financial advisor.
We or other stock promoters may receive free trading shares as compensation or we may acquire such shares in open market transactions before and during the Campaigns, and we may sell the shares we acquire at any time, even during the Campaigns while publishing the Favorable Information. When we sell the shares of the Profiled Issuers that we hold, the price at which investors can sell their shares will dramatically decrease and will likely cause investors to suffer trading losses.
We may sell securities of the Profiled Issuers for less than target prices set forth in the Information, and we may profit by selling our securities during the Campaigns while investors encounter losses.
When we acquire, purchase or sell the securities of the Profiled Issuers, it may (a) cause significant volatility in the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (b) cause temporary but unrealistic increases in volume and price of the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (c) if selling, cause the Profiled Issuer’s stock price to decline dramatically; and (d) permit us to make substantial profits while investors who purchase during the Campaign experience significant losses.
The securities of the Profiled Issuers are high risk, unstable, unpredictable and illiquid which may make it difficult for investors to sell their securities of the Profiled Issuers.
If we are compensated in improperly free trading securities of the Profiled Issuers, either directly or indirectly from persons who claim to be non-affiliates of such Profiled Issuer, we and the Profiled Issuer or third party could be subject to SEC Enforcement Action, including allegations of an illegal distribution in violation of Section 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act.
We may hire third party service providers and stock promoters to electronically disseminate live news regarding the Profiled Issuers, yet we have no control over the content of and do not verify the information that the Profiled Issuers and/or third party service providers publish. These third party service providers are likely compensated for providing positive information about the Issuer and fail to disclose their compensation to you.
If a Profiled Issuer is an SEC reporting company, it could be delinquent (not current) in its periodic reporting obligations (i.e., in its quarterly and annual reports), or if it is an OTC Markets Pink Sheet quoted company, it may be delinquent in its Pink Sheet reporting obligations, which may result in OTC Markets posting a negative legend pertaining to the Profiled Issuer at www.otcmarkets.com, as follows: (i) “Limited Information” for companies with financial reporting problems, economic distress, or that are unwilling to file required reports with the Pink Sheets; (ii) “No Information,” which characterizes companies that are unable or unwilling to provide any disclosure to the public markets, to the SEC or the Pink Sheets; and (iii) “Caveat Emptor,” signifying buyers should be aware that there is a public interest concern associated with a company’s illegal spam campaign, questionable stock promotion, known investigation of a company’s fraudulent activity or its insiders, regulatory suspensions or disruptive corporate actions.
If the Information states that a Profiled Issuer’s securities are consistent with the future economic trends or even if your independent research indicates that, you should be aware that economic trends have their own limitations, including: (a) that economic trends or predictions may be speculative; (b) consumers, producers, investors, borrowers, lenders and government may react in unforeseen ways and be affected by behavioral biases that we are unable to predict; (c) human and social factors may outweigh future economic trends that we state may or will occur; (d) clear cut economic predictions have their limitations in that they do not account for the fundamental uncertainty in economic life, as well as ordinary life; (e) economic trends may be disrupted by sudden jumps, disruptions or other factors that are not accounted for in economic trends analysis; in other words, past or present data predicting future economic trends may become irrelevant in light of new circumstances and situations in which uncertainty becomes reality rather than predicted economic outcome; or (f) if the trend predicted involves a single result, it ignores other scenarios that may be crucial to make a decision in the event of unknown contingencies.
The Information is presented only as a brief snapshot of the Profiled Issuer and should only be used, at most, and if at all, as a starting point for you to conduct a thorough investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities. You should consult your financial, legal or other adviser(s) and avail yourself of the filings and information that may be accessed at www.sec.govwww.sec.gov, www.otcmarkets.com or other electronic media, including: (a) reviewing SEC periodic reports (Forms 10-Q and 10-K), reports of material events (Form 8-K), insider reports (Forms 3, 4, 5 and Schedule 13D); (b) reviewing Information and Disclosure Statements and unaudited financial reports filed with the OTCMarkets.com; (c) obtaining and reviewing publicly available information contained in commonly known search engines such as Google; and (d) consulting investment guides at www.sec.gov and www.finra.org. You should always be cognizant that the Profiled Issuers may not be current in their reporting obligations with the SEC and the OTC Markets and/or have negative legends and designations at otcmarkets.com.
