The world is changing - companies need to change with it.

We're all undergoing a huge shift in the way we work. 50% of the global workforce is expected to be mobile by 2020. Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce by 2030. Learning and development opportunities are the most important consideration for this generation when choosing a job - even more than salary and flexible working.

Today, we use our smartphones to meet all our needs and we expect the same convenience from training and communication tools.

At EduMe, we are rethinking corporate training and communication so that it reflects how we work, where we work and how we consume information.


Our Vision:

Our Mission:
