    We’ve got a point of view.

    Schools as they exist today aren't working for anyone - students, teachers or the world they live in. We need radically different school models - and to get there, we need a radically different approach to school model development. That's what we're working on.

    We’ve done stuff.

    We're building a team that is relentlessly focused on creating what doesn't yet exist, building with - not for - communities, and with a strong bias towards action. See who's on our team or see if this might be a good place for you.

Join us in leveraging a radically different approach to school model development to create a new category of school - the R&D arm the sector so badly needs.


If you're looking for been there, done that, we might not be the place for you. If not, let's talk.

What we do

We're designing a radically different approach to school model development, catalyzing and supporting school entrepreneurs. Here's how.

  • “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
    Mark Twain
  • "Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."
    Oscar Wilde
  • "The only way you can invent tomorrow is if you break out of the enclosure that the school system has provided for you by the exams written by people who are trained in another generation."
    Neil deGrasse Tyson
  • “The chief wonder of education is that it does not ruin everybody concerned in it, teachers and taught.”
    Henry Adams
  • "We spend the first twelve months of our children’s lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve years telling them to sit down and shut up."
    Phyllis Diller
  • "Personally, I’m always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught."
    Winston Churchill
  • "What happens to the rat that stops running the maze? The doctors think it’s dumb when it’s just disappointed."
    Mark Eitzel
