Technology to help people learn

“That’s what we work on every day”

Our history

While attending university, Martèn was always looking for ways to learn smarter. See, the thing is that Martèn is dyslexic and without ways to make learning more effective for him, obtaining his masters in Business Economics was a challenge. A college friend, who was also dyslexic, came up with the MemoTrainer (The MemoTrainer is based on the ‘forgetting curve’ published by German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1885). At the time, Martèn was a business advisor at Accenture but immediately got excited to help make this idea a success.

As soon as René obtained his Commercial Engineering degree, he started a training company that focused on RSI prevention and taught computer skills. During the training, Rene noticed that homework was often not done. As a result, he wasn’t able to cover the study material in the way he wanted.

René decided to send his students a short email every couple of days. The emails included small bits of training content. This new way of working did well, but it wasn’t a scalable solution. The solution was to build software that could do this automatically. This software turned out to be much like MemoTrainer.

When René met Martèn, they decided to collaborate to create a learning platform on the basis of MemoTrainer. Thus was born aNewSpring: the learning platform for trainers and training providers.
