The Story of Prepr

  • With a vision to explore the cross-sections between open education and open innovation, we set out to forge a solution with the potential to impact a billion people's lives worldwide.

    2010

  • Prepr was first debuted at MIT TechFair in Boston on January 31, 2011 - a part of President Obama's 'Startup America Partnership' program. Following a period of extensive user research, we built our first application - a social network for education with a focus on test preparation and certification.

    2011

  • In 2013, after realizing the gap between digital and physical learning experiences, we reached a major milestone.

    2013

  • the flagship product (branded 'PIE') was born and launched on Pi Day, March 14, 2014.

    2014

  • The Prepr team and its co-creators and volunteers work tirelessly to test, update, and iterate on the PIE Method, focusing on creating unique learning experiences that are complemented by technology (without letting technological workflows overshadow the foundational concepts themselves).

    Now

  • Currently, we are focusing our efforts on delivering PIE to both public and private sector in order to bridge collaborative learning experiences, and to lab relevant solutions that solve some the world's toughest challenges.
