Wizenoze is a rapidly growing global EdTech business
“In the past, censorship worked by blocking the flow of information. In the 21st century, censorship works by flooding people with irrelevant information. People just don’t know what to pay attention to, and they often spend their time investigating and debating side issues.”
Wizenoze was founded in September 2013 in Amsterdam by Diane Janknegt and Theo Huibers to overcome the problem described above. This problem is particularly acute for students seeking to find relevant, readable and reliable educational content to support their research and study.
Students all over the world are faced with a flood of commercially-focused, inappropriate and irrelevant information when searching online. Wizenoze aim to address this by facilitating access to an internet tailored for education. We develop industry-leading technologies that enable students to search and find content online that matches their needs and reading skills.
Most importantly our technology works and improves outcomes for learners. Research from classrooms worldwide found that 91% of students with access to our Web for Classrooms product improved their learning results.
Furthermore, international recognition from the Disrupt 100, Forbes, Google, Pearson and as a finalist at the Next Billion EdTech Prize powerfully demonstrates the significant positive impact Wizenoze is having on global education standards.
