WHO WE ARE
Kunduz is passionately committed to the power of education, firmly believing that the key to transformation lies within it. Our goal is to contribute to societal development by equipping every individual with inclusive education. At Kunduz, we are dedicated to providing new opportunities that will shape the future together.
The seeds of Kunduz were sown in a boarding state school in Turkey. We, three friends, met during high school years. We prepared for the university entrance exam, taken by millions of students every year, at this school, and we all made our way to study at one of the best universities in Turkey.
Personalized performance analaysis for each student
Seeing how quality education in this small school, with students from all over Turkey and from every walk of life, can actually transform everyone's lives is what brought us together to found Kunduz. Our high school and university friends, along with many passionate education enthusiasts, joined us on this journey of change.
We believe that the transformation brought about by quality education in a small school in Anatolia can be extended to millions through technology, and the world at large needs this change. In 2018, leading investors from Silicon Valley shared our vision. Today, Kunduz continues to grow by meeting the educational needs of students in more countries each year.
At Kunduz, founded by three young individuals with the goal of transforming education to fulfill the dreams of young people, we firmly believe that every young person possesses a unique and world-changing purpose within them. The more unique this purpose is, the more personalized their learning path and the education they require should be so they can unleash their potential to achieve their goals. We understand that providing the same education to every young person and expecting equal development is unrealistic. Instead, we offer them the opportunity to receive the education only themselves and their goals require.
At Kunduz, we actively empower students with the education they need to reach their dreams. Our goal is to make technology accessible to everyone, ensuring that every student can easily access quality education on their path to achieving their goals and, as a result, establish educational equity. With tangible steps, we work with all our resources to bring students to their desired destination.
Our dream is a world where every young person can realize their potential and make an impact through accessible education and equal opportunities. To create this world, we prioritize innovation, collaborations, and our technology, welcoming more students into this dream every day. Together, we are building a realistic world where young people's dreams are not only imagined but also contribute to society with tangible achievements.
