Rewind to 2013
Our company began with two innovators from London with a simple vision to harness the latest technology and learning design to bridge the gap between education and employment. Upon recognizing this gap we asked ourselves, “How can we transform learning and training programs into more meaningful experiences that ultimately translate into accessible and necessary skills for use in the real world?”
Krishan and Carl gave up their day jobs to answer this simple question. Like any good startup story, we began by picking up two refurbished laptops and scrambling to pay rent in a building that was due for demolition. However, to the rest of the world, we always aimed to look professional. By being authentic and exceeding expectations, we quickly progressed to harnessing our own spot at the Google Campus in London.
At the Google Campus, our small dedicated team started developing custom learning platforms, using open source technology created at Harvard and MIT.
Soon enough, with a rapidly growing base, the time was right to scale the team. Learning experience designers, content production experts, software developers, and project managers were required to support the growth on both sides of the Atlantic. The company had become larger and more complex and a new CEO from Merrill Lynch was recruited to join our team. This new CEO, Simon Bryant, continued to grow the business in the Middle East, oversaw a rapid expansion of the Learning Laboratory in Cape Town, and secured strategic partnerships with two of the largest education technology companies in the world, Pearson and Instructure.
