Kids are
the best humans.

Our mission at Moonrise is to build the real world for kids.

Our story.

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.

Our mission.

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.

Here's to
the risers.

Moonrise is for kids who don't fit into our one-size-fits-all education system. We call them risers. They're the Harry Potters, Serena Williams, and Elon Musks of the world. We built a safe space for risers to be themselves. A place without limits where they can be with other risers, build things, and learn together.

A young riser who learns differently.

Pro human.

In a world designed for adults, kids deserve a space of their own. We're building the next generation of founders, artists, and scientists ready to tackle the big challenges of the 21st century.
