Friends Alex Hatvany and Jake O'Keeffe were working in the legal and financial sectors but had previous experience as private tutors at university. They had become increasingly frustrated by the inaccessibility of private tuition for most families, and the unregulated inconsistency of the teaching quality.
They decided to design and launch an alternative way for children to get the personalised support needed to succeed. This ambition led them to leave their employment and co-found Atom Learning. Their primary focus was to build an online learning platform to help primary school children improve their learning and prepare for secondary school entrance exams.
As the coronavirus pandemic swept the globe, the EdTech industry exploded with more teachers and parents turning to online learning platforms. As a result, we launched free live lessons to help children around the world carry on their education and experience a bit of normality.
We successfully raised $25 million in investment from Softbank – the largest ever Series A round secured by a UK-based EdTech platform. The investment was immediately put to use as we began to accelerate our growth in the UK and doubled our team to over 100 education and tech professionals.
As Atom continues to grow, we have added new products to our offering – including Atom Assessments and Atom Tuition.
