Why we exist

We believe everybody has the ability to provide value in today's digital economy and lead better lives.

To make this a reality we need to rethink education.

We're on a mission to build the education model of the digital era, by making it accessible, personalised and designed for employability.

The future of education

We believe in a new education system that enables people to lead better careers and lives in the digital economy. It's based on 3 pillars.

1. Make education accessible

Talent is everywhere, opportunity is not.
We envision a model that allows everyone the possibility to develop to their full potential and access global opportunities, regardless of their geography, background or socio-economic status.

2. Personalized to each individual

Different minds learn at different paces and in different ways.
Before the digital revolution it was hard to imagine a scalable way to provide individual learning paths for each student. This is not true anymore. Education should leverage technology to adapt to the needs of each individual.

3. Designed for employability

Education should deliver ROI
The basis to design any educational experience should be reverse engineered from the expected or desired outcome.  If, for example, the objective is to land a job, education should ensure it’s teaching the most relevant skills in the most effective way to achieve this.
