Otta's take

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Atom Learning is an Edtech platform that uses AI to personalise education. It was founded after Jake O’Keeffe and Alex Hatvany became frustrated by the inequality in education and saw a potential to use technology to reduce the gap between those most and least privileged.

Its adaptive learning platform reduces teacher workload, supports teachers in managing mixed-ability classes, and enables those who are not subject experts to run productive classes. For parents, Atom Learning is also an affordable alternative to private tutors.

The company has experienced rapid growth since its launch and is now being used by over 25,000 pupils, and is also used in countries such as Hong Kong, Nigeria, South Korea and Abu Dhabi. It is now focusing on the next stage of its growth both in the UK and global markets, and on continuing to build out the data science and content that it provides to its users.
