About Kami

Kami was founded in 2013, by Auckland University students Hengjie Wang, Alliv Samson and Jordan Thoms. What began as a personal study and collaboration tool for the three students has since evolved into an international education sensation, with paid and free versions utilized by over 200 countries. Samson describes Kami’s software as a solution to the many stresses of online learning.

“We are basically breaking down the four walls of the classroom and making it more flexible for the teachers and the students. They can be anywhere, anytime, doing their work. It’s teaching these kids to be ready for the workforce by learning the right tools. We make it a point that wherever they are, we understand what they are going through, and I think that’s the beauty of being a tech start-up; we’re agile enough to adjust to whatever our users’ needs are.”
