Experience Language's mission is to create peace in the world by bringing people together to share language and culture face-to-face.
I'm interested in trying to build a benefit corporation and believe there is both a sizeable market and opportunity to improve civil dialogue in our society while teaching and sharing language and culture.
Please reply/connect If you are interested in language study, international cultures, having a positive impact, and/or the vision of increasing civil dialogue and may be interested in starting a company with me I can share some of the work I've pulled together. I have conducted market research, found some academic research on promising technology that could be co-opted for a game based language learning application, and created a machine learning algorithm to estimate learner state (which is required by the afore mentioned learning tech), and pseudocoded up some potential algorithms to bring it together in a new business model.
I'm mainly looking for a developer who can create cross-platform mobile applications (presumably web based), but also interested in talking with folks with other skills. Looking for equity cofounders to bootstrap with. I'm interested in exploring incorporating as a benefit corporation so we can be free to make decisions with total social benefit in mind.
