The Talent Squared Record Label has a vision to unleash the work of leading academics in a way that has never been done before, and to disrupt the status quo in the delivery of excellence in education.
We recruit the best minds in academia and work with them to repurpose their work as audiovisual content. This content, recorded as individual tracks, becomes the building blocks for albums which Talent Squared will continue to produce under the academic artist’s name over the course of their career. Lectures become albums, courses develop into playlists and academic research gains new life in sound and vision.
Who then can benefit from cutting-edge perspectives developed from years of research within the best institutions?
“Knowledge shared is knowledge squared.“
