Gerlinde Gniewosz, CEO Founder, KO-SU, shares five insights into this award-winning UK startup following their recent success in the Discovering Start-ups Competition 2014.

 

Where did the idea for KO-SU come from?

We had initially started out developing educational mobile apps – over 60 of them in our first year.  However, we soon noticed that teachers, trainers and students struggled to find that perfect app for what they wanted teach or learn.  Consequently, we decided to put everything we had learned about designing for learning experiences for mobile devices into a platform and open it up to the education and training community.  Fundamentally, we want to make mobile technology accessible to teachers, trainers & students, without them having to learn how to program or to hire an expensive developer.
