Startups 100-listed Pobble, an online literacy company which connects teachers and students via an ‘online classroom wall’, has launched its service globally.

Founded in 2013 by a group of teachers, the London-based company – originally called LendMeYourLiteracy – seeks to improve children’s literacy by giving them the motivation to write and be creative.

The company, which won the People’s Champion Award at the prestigious Startups Awards 2015 and recently featured in our Awards Hall of Fame, currently hosts 40,000 pieces of written work across 100 countries and has the backing of famous children's authors Michael Morpurgo and Anthony Horowitz.

Jon Smith, Pobble Co-Founder and CEO, said: “We’ve been astounded by the support and demand for Pobble, which is inspiring young people to write and providing valuable resource for teachers.

“The platform was founded and developed in the classroom, with the impact on teaching and learning as our central consideration. Quite simply, we’re on a global literacy mission and we’ve developed and evolved the Pobble platform around that.”
