The Future Belongs to the Curious

by 11 enero 2012

From the moment we open our eyes it fuels our existence. We are on a mission to remind everyone to never lose your sense of curiosity or wonder. Long live learning!


We’re all born with it. Albert Einstein dubbed it “holy,” Alistair Cooke called it “free-wheeling intelligence.” It’s that piquing force that nudges us to try it again, explore it some more, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out. From the moment we open our eyes, it fuels our existence. With each new answer we find, our world expands and our passions grow. We can’t wait to share what we’ve learned and teach others how to do it themselves.

But for many of us, this excitement and spark to passion settles as the years go by. Instead of learning because we want to, we begin learning because we have to.

At Skillshare, we are on a mission to reawaken the slumbering curiosity and that rampant drive in everyone. To act as an enticing reminder that we are all natural-born learners and teachers — from day one to twenty thousand and one. We want to push everyone to discover their passions and be brave enough to chase them. Skillshare exists to make everyone the greatest possible version of themselves.

Our vision is to democratize learning by empowering teaching. To build a world where you can learn anything from anyone. Powered by an endless cycle of learning and sharing passions. We will turn every community into a campus. Every address into a classroom. And every inhabitant into a student and teacher. Skillshare is for the doers, not the academics or the theorists.

We are building the new world of education. From now on, there will be no passion left undiscovered, no personal potential left unfulfilled and no skill left unshared. In short, we’re here to change the world by increasing the global passion index.

The future belongs to the curious. The ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out.

Will you join us?
