Are you curious about Curious?
At Curious we believe in lifelong learning. Learning for its own sake. Learning that happens beyond classrooms, and not only in academic subjects (unless you count beer brewing, pipe soldering, and organic gardening as academic). Learning as a necessity of living.
At Curious we also believe great teachers are as valuable to society as great business leaders or academic thinkers. We wonder why there are hundreds of high-tech ways to share silly photos, and military-grade technology can help us find our friends at a bar, but teachers have few quality tools to help them succeed online.
We believe teachers are some of society’s greatest entrepreneurs and should be treated as such.
We also believe that videos of cats dancing the Macarena, and super-slo-mo exploding watermelons are really cool, but not the kind of online learning we’re talking about. And that Justin’s new band only reminds us a little bit of this. But that’s another story...
Mostly, we believe in being curious.
THE CURIOUS CREED
Our mission is to connect the world’s teachers with its lifelong learners. While doing that we aspire to live up to the Curious Creed, and its five priorities (in order, sort of):
We love employing people, and creating an excellent work environment. Even though Justin got in a lot of hot water once before for putting employees first on the list, he hasn’t changed his mind...
We strive to build beautifully simple products that are powerful and constantly improving.
Without customers we can’t revolutionize anything. We want our customers to depend on us to better their lives. If we ever let them down, we will always make things right, and fix the root problem so it doesn’t happen again.
We have an obligation to those around us: our neighbors, our fellow citizens, our globe and even our competitors who are also trying to improve the state of online learning.
We are extremely grateful for the support of our shareholders. We believe the best way to create long term shareholder value is to fulfill the above four obligations.
