I see myself often in sheer awe listening like a child to passionate hackers like our friends Taso Du Val or David Weekly. I truly admire engineers who have this playful vision that goes beyond the hypes of what people seem to dig today and strives for what truly transforms people's lives.
On the contrary "When I see a new web startup trying to increase click-thru ad-rates by 10%, it breaks my heart a little. It's not that what they're doing is wrong. But I just can't help but feel like I'm seeing incredible entrepreneurial talent wasted on something that fundamentally doesn't matter much." (by Nathaniel Whittemore)
In fact it is a good start … now just add to the ycombinator equation of "building useful technology" variables such as "world-changing" or "socially transforming". Because the more technical visionaries adopt a social vision the more we will have great companies like Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, etc.
How about you? Are you hacking with a purpose, yet?
How about education? Just think about it - the majority of people worldwide have no access to quality education if any.
So why not build the next generation infrastructure for education that is scalable, fun and effective and gives everybody the same chance in life?
We are searching for visionary hackers to join the Supercool School team.
We are a small team of highly purpose-driven individuals from Europe with an outstanding expertise in education and a strong entrepreneurial background. Vlad our - current technical chief - has lead the development for 8 venture backed ROR Startups in Europe & US.
We are all driven by our believe in the power of learning. We believe that education is the answer to all the challenges that we face today. And even though we don't have all the solutions yet, we believe that they can be found in the hearts and minds of the people. So empowering them to learn and to develop their true potential means empowering the world to become all it can be: a better place for all of us.
