About Lingvist

We believe learning can change the world. Lingvist’s mission is to develop and commercialize technology that enables radical improvement in human learning efficiency.

From the humble beginnings of the prototype, which our CEO built while looking for the Higgs boson at CERN, we have grown to be the next big thing in the EdTech space. We chose language learning as the first application, not because it is easy, but rather because it is hard. Our long-term vision is to apply this technology to other fields of education and accelerate human learning as broadly as possible.

In order to improve and make our services accessible to all, we need some help.
