about the innovation

What is TOMi.Digital?

What we do?

We are closing the gap between developed and developing countries' classrooms. TOMi.Digital platform helps teachers to find and create awesome classes and TOMi device support them to deploy it even inside classrooms without internet access. 

Why we do it?

When Alejo and me (the founders) were children in Medellin Colombia, we were growing up in a violent and poor neighborhood in the middle of the drug conflict of the 90's. Despite that, there was a teacher who believed in our human potential and bet on us. Our teacher made lot of personal effort for changing our minds and becoming us into entrepreneurs. Thanks to that teacher we have created multiple EdTech companies and hundred of employments even without the opportunity of going to the College. That why we believe and work hard for teachers and we have created TOMi to help teachers to write more stories like ours.

HundrED Academy Review

In emerging countries, especially in rural areas, onsite instruction is still the norm, yet the lack of qualified teachers and the Internet is a devastating issue. A device like TOMi is a way to alleviate such issues.

An excellent idea for the MANY schools that still do not have internet access.
