our mission & vision

Our vision is for human society to be made of happy, creative, problem-solving individuals, who have the ability and freedom to grow and discover their full potential.

Our mission is to figure out the best ways for people to develop their skills, unleash their full potential and live joyous lives, the way they want to live them.

Why we exist

At Leapian we have developed a philosophy behind why we do what we do and it revolves around a few key issues that we aim to address.

For us, happiness is the ability to enjoy every single moment, no matter the situation and what we are doing. We all have to ‘work’ so let’s make sure that everyone has access to enjoyable meaningful work. We believe that happiness (not at the expense of others) and satisfaction are the highest aims for people in life.

All of the challenges outlined below are interrelated and at Leapian we believe that in solving them we can fulfil our vision and mission.

Universal Challenges

Challenge 1. The reality for many people is that most of the time spent working or learning is miserable. When we enjoy what we are doing and how we are doing it, then that makes quality time that leads to happiness. We need ways to maximise the amount of enjoyment in the work that we do.

Challenge 2. There are several tried and tested methodologies and skills that once developed allow us to unleash our full potential. However, these are rarely taught during our learning careers. By incorporating these methodologies in our work, our productivity increases and enjoyment is higher.

Challenges in Education

Challenge 3. Few people have the freedom to choose what they want to do with their lives (ie. what schools, universities, jobs they go to). To have this freedom, we need:

  1. Performance record [eg. good grades];
  2. Have spent time doing extra-curricular activities that are interesting to you (which means you have developed several other skills beyond job performance);
  3. Know at least 2 languages;
  4. Have developed good social & communication skills.

Challenge 4. Machines will automate and replace several jobs.

Challenge 5. We spend too much time indoors, behind screens and in environments that stifle our creativity and ability to develop ourselves. This is especially the case for students in a classroom setting.

how are we addressing the challenges above?

Learning methods + technology

We research & develop learning methodologies (such as speed reading, knowledge organisation, memorisation) and integrate them in software so that people have access to them.

Software Tools

We create tools, methods and techniques that are proven to speed up learning and output production times.

We develop software that enables individuals/users to get things done by harnessing the full power of modern technology (and having fun while doing it!).

Innovative Technologies

Our technology makes use of smart algorithms that empower us become more efficient and effective. This technology is designed to help users focus on what makes them human: the ability to take decisions, build connections, create.

The user is left 100% of the choice of where to make connections and to pick what is relevant to them. We will never build auto-summarising; auto-completion; auto-anything. Ever.

Community of Learners

We are working on creating a community of learners who want to have an impact and develop their lifelong learning skills.

We are also working on creating an extracurricular programme that teaches students valuable life skills such as meditation, personal development, coaching & study skills.

Company Values

We are creating a culture where everyone grows, we develop kicka$$ products and share an adventure together.

Passion, purpose and desire to have a positive impact infuse everything we do. At Leapian we strive to do inspiring work, to be proactive team players who enjoy to take the initiative and get things done.

All our people should have the courage and resourcefulness to spark change – to make better our products, our people, our place. Continuous improvement is a shared responsibility. Action is an independent one.

We spend a huge amount of our time at work. So the more that time doesn’t feel like “work,” the better. We can be serious, without taking ourselves too seriously. We strive to put what’s right for the team first – whether in a meeting room or on a football pitch.

Customers are our lifeblood. Without happy customers, we’re doomed. So considering the customer perspective - collectively, not just a handful - comes first.

We aim to always do the best for us and our customers, giving them the best experience possible.

We are passionate about doing great work, with the wisdom to consider trade-offs and options with care.

We want to work alongside people who, each day, inspire us to go beyond our full potential. People who are up for an adventure.
