Helping the World Learn English

Helping the World Learn English

OKpanda is an English learning platform that includes instant messaging, live voice, and digital curricula. In the same way Uber allows anybody with a car to be a Limo service, we allow any qualified English teacher to build their own English classroom.

We target the $50B dollar English learning space, the majority of whose revenues still go to brick and mortar language schools.

Despite a growing amount of great (and free) content, a learner’s problem is knowing what to use, how to use it, and not giving up. Our teachers use OKpanda’s live-video classes and cutting edge digital curricula to solve students’ #1 cause of failure, giving up, and deliver an awesome learning experience.

In December 2013 we released our first product on Japan’s Apple App Store, and have since then reached #1 position in the education category, Apple app of the year 2014 and brought in over 1 million installs. We are executing against our vision, growing fast, and looking for amazing people to join us.
