Our Team


Synthesis teaches 21,500+ kids how to solve problems like Elon.

Elon saw the flaws in the industrial education system, so he started a lab school at SpaceX with our co-founder.

In 2020, we made the best of that curriculum available to kids across the globe.

Now, we are training tens of thousands of students—and thousands more join every month. 

Synthesis kids learn hard skills with their own superhuman AI tutor.

The best way to learn is with a personal tutor. We have known this since Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great.

Now, any kid in the world can get a personalized AI tutor—and learn exponentially more than with a top human tutor (read more here).

We plan to offer a full replacement for K-12 education, but we have started first with the most important subject: mathematics. 

They learn soft skills with challenging team games and live coaching.

Elon is brilliant, but more importantly, he knows how to get things done with a team.

To teach this skill, we give kids what they need the most: experience solving complex problems together.

They dive into simulations that mirror the challenges of real life. All along the way, they are guided by live coaches dedicated to their growth.

To kids, Synthesis feels like playing a game with friends.

To parents, kids are learning the world's most valuable skills:

  • critical thinking
  • teamwork
  • strategy
  • communication
  • creativity
  • and so much more.

Our goal is to make Synthesis available to every child in the world. 

But our first commitment is to the top 1% by cognitive ability and commitment.

Our current system is cutting off the runway for our most advanced students. We believe in doing the opposite—challenging these students as much as possible so that they build the capabilities to solve big problems for all of us.

Education is a positive-sum game.

We are excited to announce a $XM financing round led by Replit CEO Amjad Masad.

We're in a strong financial position. In 10 months, we have grown our student body by 7x and revenue by 7.7x. We're also cash flow positive.

Why raise money, then?

The reason is simple. Today, we serve 21,500+ students, but we want to serve hundreds of millions more. Our aim is to raise $X from our early supporters so that we can further accelerate human progress.

We're excited to extend this invitation to our community ♥️
