About Us

Talking to learners of different ages, we realized that the reason why there isn’t a leading online education platform today is that education platforms all over the internet have poor user experience. Built around the idea to perfect the user experience of online education, is an online education platform to distribute engaging educational content at scale - starting with high-school students in Hong Kong. Simply speaking - it's a marketplace, and on students' side - it's an online learning platform where students can subscribe to courses in pre-recorded format or engage with tutors in live-streaming; on tutors' side - it's a platform with everything to start their online education businesses such as developing and selling the courses online, also growing their brand and sales. We want to be the definitive education company - the platform you go whenever you wanna learn.

Kosmic is an engineering company working on next-generation solutions for education so everyone can enjoy access to engaging educational content. Our engineers build and maintain next-generation technologies that will change how millions of learners all over the world learn and master the knowledge from a compelling knowledge hub we built from ground up.
