Kognity is a fast-growing EdTech company and we aim to radically improve learning for 1.5 billion school students globally.

We pursue our vision because there are few more important jobs than educating the world’s young people. No other single factor has a higher impact on the prosperity and well-being of humanity than education. Yet technology has previously not delivered on any of its promises of better learning. At Kognity, we have set out to do this.
