At its origins, Silicon Valley

To understand Schoolab’s origins, we need to go back to its roots. In 2005, 3 founders with their experience as entrepreneurs and inspired by their visit to Silicon Valley in the United States, made two impactful observations:

  • European companies cultivated very strong internal silos, which blocked their capacity for innovation. These silos stemmed from the education system, which was divided between different educational pathways that did not interact with each other.
  • On the other hand, the emergence of innovation approaches from the world of design in the US, offered a huge untapped potential for useful innovation adapted to real needs.
