Skale creates software that transforms organizations into self-teaching communities. Peers are connected through the Skale mobile app to regularly learn, teach, and practice skills. As they gain mastery of skills, peers become certified to teach those skills to their peers, thus massively scaling 1-on-1 mastery-based learning.
