Can we create a more hopeful future for humankind by unlocking dormant ingenuity around the world? We believe that we can. And it starts with a game.
A jumble of letters from exams you took years ago? The accent you speak with?
The system is broken.
Your true intelligence is hidden to yourself and the world around you.
The dominant way society measures how smart you are in early life - the academic qualification - is on its own inaccurate, unfair and outmoded.
When it comes to discovering and proving our intelligence, what we have an analogue model in a digital world.
This results in a colossal waste of our most valuable resource: human ingenuity.
From a macro economic perspective 1.3bn arein work that they are under or overqualified for creating an ever growing skills mismatch. 18 trillion in opportunity cost by 2025. Thats the GDP of the entire EU.
As the planet faces up to the existential challenges of the next 100 years, we simply can't afford to let bright minds go to waste.
And yet there is no identity platform to navigate this new world. Until now.
We've got an ambitious roadmap packed with new features, partnerships and value creation for our community.
We've been working hard through 2022 - building the team, designing the game experiences and our technical architecture.
