Inspiration

My purpose in life is to make lives better through technology. This was the underlying motivation behind Gradenova.

Gradenova wants to help make high-quality education accessible to everyone by building digital tools that help teachers to be more effective and efficient. According to UNESCO, 34% of the world’s countries will not have enough teachers by 2030. This problem is worse in African nations where 7 out of 10 countries facing this issue. Gradenova will also be an invaluable tool in the current COVID-19 pandemic by making millions of teachers more efficient as they transition to online learning.

Gradenova was founded with the mission of making education accessible to everyone, and that's why we're committed to making a difference. Moreover, every subscription changes the life of one child. We want to help 10000 children attend school by the end of 2020.
