Our Story

Learning and community, together at last.

We believe decentralized learning communities will be the most effective way to create change in the world. These niche, purpose-built learning communities have the power to shape the future of education and are only growing as the world looks to remote work and more sustainable ways to gather.

That’s why we’ve committed our life’s work to offering learning pioneers the tools and support to build and grow global learning communities.

Our Values

Create a Better World

We want our impact to be net positive in the world. We are intentional with how our platform, culture, and choices impact people + planet.

Growth Mindset

A growth mindset leads to lifelong learning. Our approach is learn by doing: test, iterate, reflect, learn.

Enjoy the Journey

Have fun and enjoy the freedom that comes with remote work. We are creating a culture where everyone feels empowered to do their best work.

Simplify & Move Fast

Choose the simplest path (not the easiest path). It’s better to be faster to insight than take too long to launch to get feedback.

Be Inclusive & Diverse

We welcome and encourage diversity of ideas, perspectives, and lived experiences.

Build With Empathy

Help founders and operators make a sustainable living growing learning communities through deep empathy for the building process and journey.
