On a mission to build the number one global school

From homework help to tailored tuition

Back in 2015 GoStudent started out as a WhatsApp homework chat. Felix Ohswald, our CEO and Co-Founder, was completing his Master’s degree in Quantitative Finance at ETH Zurich. His younger brother, Moritz, who was also studying, began referring his classmates to Felix for help with their maths homework. The volume of messages increased rapidly and Felix quickly realised the need for readily available, tailored support. He resolved to tackle this issue, and reached out to his friend Gregor Müller, GoStudent’s Co-Founder and COO, proposing that they build a dedicated homework support app together. The idea was to connect users with inspiring, motivated tutors who would offer high quality, personalised assistance. GoStudent was subsequently founded in 2016, with the app launching that summer.
