At Mindstone, we are building a platform that automatically creates the best learning pathways from content available online (articles, podcasts, videos, you name it) to help you reach your learning goals, while at the same time inserting elements of discovery to bring the joy back into learning.
The internet made information universally accessible, Google organised it, and now Mindstone combines it with the science of learning to help people to learn faster, remember more, and develop their skills, interests and career.
In a world with unlimited access to information and resources, we want to provide anyone, anywhere in the world with the tools, confidence and motivation to take ownership of their own learning. As we continue to build out our offering in the future, Mindstone will enable you to
When your learning is more exploratory, Mindstone will enable you to
We want Mindstone to understand your goals, know your preferences, and structure learning around your life instead of getting in your way.
By breaking up your progress into a granular “skill profile”, Mindstone will make learning more tangible while at the same time enabling you to present more accurate assessments of your skills to future employers.
Ultimately, we want to help you accelerate not just your structured learning, but also your just-in-time, on-the-job learning. The platform will keep track of what you have learned, when you learned it, and why, helping you consolidate and apply those learnings in the most effective way.
In a world where many institutions are struggling to iterate on their position as the gatekeepers of learning, Mindstone wants to decentralise it by putting learners back in control and unlocking their true potential.
At Mindstone we know what it’s like to work remotely - we launched during lockdown and some members of our team have never met in person. So we set out to build a learning platform that we would want to use ourselves.
Joshua Wohle - Chief Executive Officer
As co-founder @ SuperAwesome, I learned to build a company from first principles. Thinking back over my own learning journey, from dropping out of college twice, to getting a remote MBA from the Open University, I realized that the first principles of education were all wrong. We need a model of learning that focuses on the learner, not the institution or the employer. That’s why I founded Mindstone.
Patrick Cootes - Chief Learning Officer
As a secondary teacher and head of Sixth Form I’ve seen first-hand how the education system leaves people feeling like failures, when it’s the system itself that's broken. Josh and I got talking about what a better learning experience would look like, and the idea of a learner-centred approach really clicked with me. I co-founded Mindstone to help people become better learners, and I’ve never looked back.
Melody Lang - Chief Operating Officer
My PhD is in engineering, but my passion is Education, which led me to change career to co-found Mindstone. I want to see a future where what you learn, how you learn, and when and where you learn is up to you, not an institution - and that’s exactly what Mindstone is setting out to achieve.
