Our mission at Moonrise is to build the real world for kids.
Back in 2019, my wife and I were touring local schools for our five-year-old son. As a tech entrepreneur, I assumed schools would be using the latest technology in spaces designed for kids' wellbeing. But I found the opposite. Kids were spelling "cat" on the chalkboard. They were learning Spanish with a textbook instead of Duolingo. Classrooms had the same desks, concrete walls, and fluorescent lighting I remembered from my childhood. I was working at a coworking space at the time and thought, "Why can't kids learn in a place like this?" I believe the greatest opportunity for human progress is to raise kids in environments that empower creativity. That's why I started Moonrise.
Founder & CEO
Our mission is to build a world for kids. Today, most kids spend the formative years of their lives in school. We believe school is a simulation of reality, and not a very good one. That's why everyone says "welcome to the real world" when kids graduate. Moonrise is making it safe for kids to engage with the real world today, starting with flexible colearning spaces.
