Meet Your Crew

Rooting for you to win at both school and life

Hi, we’re so glad you stopped by. Let us tell you our story.

In the age of AI, choosing to be uniquely human is crucial. And at Doyobi, we equip your child with skills that no robot can replicate.

I’m a proud father of five and a tech investor who started a coding school for kids ten years ago. I saw what technology could do and wanted to help kids learn to build with it. But over the years, I realised that it’s not just about coding skills anymore. With ChatGPT and other AI systems on the rise, we need to equip our kids with skills that make us uniquely human: from critical thinking, to confidence and collaboration. We need them to be AI-resilient so the future won’t be something to fear but rather something to look forward to. This is where Doyobi comes in.

We are on a mission to empower kids to contribute meaningfully to the world. And our highly interactive, challenge-based learning experiences in the metaverse give them the push they need to nurture their curiosity, creativity, and growth mindset. The best part?

Doyobi-verse, as we like to call it, is so immersive that they won’t even feel like they’re learning. They’ll just be having a blast.

We are driven by an optimistic vision of a future where every child can thrive in a rapidly changing world.
