Once upon a time ...
In 2011, two entrepreneurs fans of new technologies named Thierry Debarnot and Anthony Kuntz - respectively founders of Media Etudiant and Kreactive - met.
Media Etudiant and Kreactive are two companies born in Lyon in 2005. For almost six years, these two companies were growing up in parallel. Media Etudiant is the result of a Business School student needs who wants to find an online platform where students share their lessons. Kreactive is specialized in new technologies and the creation of smartphones and tablets apps.
In 2011, the two young entrepreneurs shared the same belief: education and teaching were about to undergo a digital revolution. Kreactive and Media Etudiant got closer to each other and gave birth to digiSchool, the leader of digital education we know now.
Once upon a time digiSchool
digiSchool has been helping young people pass their exams and choose a course path for 10 years. digiSchool works along with about 100 teachers and careers counselors to offer a free and quality "school after school" service to young people from 15 to 25.
digiSchool counts 6.5 million members and more than 5,000 new members every day for a total of 2.7 million unique visitors per month (Médiamétrie Nielsen - June 2016).
The public is particularly excited about its applications to revise for the GCSEs, the A-levels and the driving theory test. At the end of 2016, digiSchool launched a free careers counsel coaching program mixing an online digital process to find a course path and offline meetings (with coaches, schools and professionals) to ensure their choice. To speed up its development in France and abroad, digiSchool realized a €14 millions fundraising in February 2016.
digiSchool draws its strength on the collaboration of the product, technical, commercial teams, and the teaching profession.
All along its development digiSchool has kept the same values :
- Passionate about the Internet
- Knowledge of students and education environments
- Having a taste for challenges
- Attention to perfection
A team who is constantly ready to accept new challenges
