Why this opportunity matters
Every day, kids come to class feeling engaged, supported and excited to learn because of Classkick. Our goal is that every student in the world is happy and successful in their education.
To achieve this, we connect students and their school work to all the advocates in their learning: classmates, teachers, parents, anyone invested in them. When the right person is there at the right time – whether with a high five, or some help when stuck – that’s when you get more Ah ha! and OH I got it! moments. Learning transforms from a chore into a fun and intrinsic experience.
After the pandemic, we suddenly expanded from being a major tool in the classroom, to becoming the classroom itself, for both in-person and hybrid learning. Joining at this stage is pivotal and will have high impact on the future direction of the company.
