UK-based edutech platform, Atom Learning, has announced its international expansion into Asia, Africa and the Middle East. It’s online learning platform – Atom Prime, which uses AI to transform educational outcomes – is now used by schools in Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Nigeria and Abu Dhabi.
50% growth month-on-month has seen Atom Learning double its headcount in the last two months. The startup has also announced a number of significant new positions. The Atom Learning team will drive the development of its innovative learning platform. The platform combines high-quality content, designed and produced by teachers, with sophisticated technology that keep students on their individual, optimal learning paths.
Founded in 2018 by Jake O’Keeffe and Alex Hatvany, Atom Learning was born out of a frustration with inequality in education provision in the UK and globally. Atom Learning’s co-founders see huge potential in technology to close the attainment gap between the most and least privileged.
Jake O’Keeffe, co-founder of Atom Learning, said: “We have seen phenomenal growth since launching Atom Prime in May, doubling headcount in just two months and now expanding internationally. This demonstrates a clear appetite from schools and parents for innovative solutions to improving access to high-quality education.
“We firmly believe in the power of technology to enhance educational outcomes and reduce the gap in attainment between the most and least privileged, and that is why we continue to invest in the growth of the business, to constantly improve the platform and to reach greater numbers of students across the UK and overseas.”
