Motivar is a tech-enabled learner support platform for digital education that helps learners achieve their goals by providing incentives, accountability, and communal learning.

Launched in 2021, the company seeks to provide learner-support services and be the easiest way for learners to find, start and complete digital courses. The team of five has just completed the first of four stages of their pilot, with the idea to distribute the service via software products and community centres.

Insightful! The sessions helped me find clarity on the what, and the how. Helping ultimately to improve the chances of Motivar succeeding. That is what i am most grateful for.
