🌎 Our Vision

If the future of work has radically changed, why hasn't our approach to education?

Humans typically grow linearly. Yet change is happening exponentially. Even the most motivated individuals face 3 major obstacles in their pursuit of accelerated professional growth:

β€” Lack of time

β€” Lack of guidance

β€” Choice overload

Inspired by what Headspace has done for mindfulness, Fitbit has done for fitness, Duolingo has done for language learning, we're on a mission to build the ultimate lifelong learning companion for the modern business leader: an on-demand business school that's future-focused, operator-led and community-driven. Our ambition is to empower the 1.25BN knowledge workers across the world to thrive in a world of accelerating change.
