At Bloom we know what it’s like to work remotely - we launched during lockdown and some members of our team have never met in person. So we set out to build a learning platform that we would want to use ourselves.
Joshua Wohle - Chief Executive Officer
As co-founder @ SuperAwesome, I learned to build a company from first principles. Thinking back over my own learning journey, from dropping out of college twice, to getting a remote MBA from the Open University, I realized that the first principles of education were all wrong. We need a model of learning that focuses on the learner, not the institution or the employer. That’s why I founded Bloom.
Patrick Cootes - Chief Learning Officer
As a secondary teacher and head of Sixth Form I’ve seen first-hand how the education system leaves people feeling like failures, when it’s the system itself that's broken. Josh and I got talking about what a better learning experience would look like, and the idea of a learner-centred approach really clicked with me. I co-founded Bloom to help people become better learners, and I’ve never looked back.
Melody Lang - Chief Operating Officer
My PhD is in engineering, but my passion is Education, which led me to change career to co-found Bloom. I want to see a future where what you learn, how you learn, and when and where you learn is up to you, not an institution - and that’s exactly what Bloom is setting out to achieve.
Florian Zysset - Chief Technology Officer
This is the third company I’ve launched with Josh, so I knew what I was getting myself into! With Bloom we’re working to build something flexible and open-ended, where you never get bored because there’s always something new to learn.
