Changing the world's relationship with learning

The world is changing quickly, and our institutions are falling behind. The knowledge you need to succeed today and what our education system offers are painfully out of sync.

In contrast social networks have connected us to a wealth of information, but they often incentivize behavior that leaves us feeling like we've wasted our time.

We’re building edgi to be a place where you can feel good about your time and learn about the issues that matter most to our future.
