Founded in early 2013, Gibbon graduated from the Rockstart Accelerator Program in Amsterdam past summer. Spending the last monts in private beta, Gibbon is now opening its door to everyone. Gibbon brings a new dynamic to education by creating a clear path through valuable content on the web.
Gibbon started when its founders noticed that all the know-how needed to run their web agency came from online content, often recommended by their peers. Being self-taught in design and programming, they were able to create a successful business building software for big companies. Convinced that the traditional way of learning is outdated they are now fully focussed on making Gibbon the leading informal educator in the world.
Founded in Leiden, the Netherlands, city with one of the oldest universities in the world, it is ready to kickstart the new way of learning. One where everyone can be a teacher and student. In which everyone is free to learn at their own pace.
Since their private beta, Gibbon already has 4000 users that learn from over 300 playlists on subjects ranging from Design, Photography and Privacy. Join Gibbon and start learning those subjects you are interested in but never found the time to do so. Or, share your own expertise and start teaching today."
