The heart behind Ori
The Ori Learning platform was originally developed as an iPad app in 2011 by our company founder and CEO, Jon Izak, shortly after he graduated college. His drive and purpose were largely inspired by his younger brother, Ori.
Ori is a loving person, who happens to have autism. During Ori’s educational journey, he met many dedicated educators committed to supporting his growth. Their devotion, combined with Jon’s technology, allowed Ori to learn the basic life skills to navigate the world confidently.
Throughout the years, the app evolved into a platform committed to partnering with teachers to ensure they can focus on what matters most. We have become a learning company that makes learning more meaningful and accessible because we believe that every mind has the potential to offer something beautiful to the world.
