Arist: From Dorm Room to YC with Michael Ioffe
Today, Michael Ioffe is the co-founder and CEO of Arist, a state-of-the-art text message learning platform trusted by Fortune 500 companies like DuPont. Just over 2 years ago, Michael first witnessed how effective text message learning could be for teaching kids, even when those kids were living in a Yemeni conflict zone.
