Education technology company KnowRe (www.knowre.com) was listed in Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies 2014 series as one of “The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Education.”
Peg Tyre, nationally renowned writer, lecturer and thinker about education and author of the article cites KnowRe “for deploying a datacentric learning platform that even a kid could use.” She continued, “KnowRe has developed a mathematics app that uses a fun, achievement-based, gamified interface to figure out what skills middle-schoolers need to master algebra, then uses adaptive technology to tailor lessons, practices, and quizzes to make sure those gaps get filled in.”
“We are very excited to be included in this list of prestigious companies,” says David Joo, KnowRe’s Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “It is encouraging to be recognized for the value of our technology, which provides student assessments at an unrivaled level of granularity and accuracy.”

KnowRe plans to release Algebra II and Geometry by the end of the year, with Calculus and Statistics to follow.
