About Us - old

Our vision is to 'Humanize the world through transformational learning' and create a better, more caring and thoughtful world. 

Gnowbe started out with a dream to improve the lives of people through action-based learning. We want Gnowbe to be a part of people’s daily lives, thus we created a mobile education app that delivers bite-sized knowledge that meets 3 key needs:
Relevance • Applicability • Scalability

Our team

The Gnowbe family is made up of a group of individuals who are passionate about lifelong learning, and we want to help others build their own learning journeys. We are educators, designers, programmers and business people who believe true learning occurs when it is put into practice.
