My ambition for Rumie is to transform the way people learn around the world, especially people who have never really received the opportunity to learn. Humanity’s greatest single resource is brainpower. There are a billion children that are underserved in education—we think our potential to scale can have massive impact for these children in communities in Canada and globally.

The interesting thing about Rumie is the infinite scalability of the product. If Rumie can be successful not only in bringing high-quality education to areas in the world without access, but also incorporating the LearnCloud element in the process, they have the opportunity to change education as we know it.

Venture Investment

Rumie delivers high-quality open-source learning content through affordable tablets and its Android app, the LearnCloud. Rumie preloads $50 tablets with curated libraries of high quality content and delivers them to education organizations who implement them in their programs. In Canada, Rumie is working with Pathways to Education and Woodgreen to curate and deliver skills training, financial literacy and health content.

The Rumie Initiative is the Centre’s venture investment. Our work includes supporting the creation of pilot programs in key locations to assess impact before scaling begins.
