Hub21 is developing a hybrid learning platform that aims to get more young people between the ages of 7 and 17 interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and prepared for our digital future. What is more, Hub21 is on a mission to close the gender gap in STEM by increasing the number of female students taking lessons via their platform and boosting their tech and digital skills.

The problem

Our education system is stuck in time. Schools are training students for a world that no longer exists. Less than 20% of the classrooms in the world are equipped with the right technology to teach children the age skills necessary to tackle the changing job landscape.

The solution

We provide a space to learn while having fun through highly engaging tech-programmes. Hub21 offers personalized, self-paced courses using an adaptive learning methodology that responds to the way students learn and one-on-one or small group live online video sessions with tutors from the top universities around the world. 


We have 12 different programmes, with 32 levels. Since 2019, more than 800 students have joined our programmes from 10 countries, and 50 tutors have been trained. 

What they're saying about BOOST

“BOOST’s Women Innovators programme is a great opportunity to learn more about impact and improve our impact model by collaborating with our peers. Being part of a community of international female founders empowered us to build together for a better future.”
