About Us

Our Team

You’ve heard it before and we’ll say it again: 

No one can take your education away from you. 

We created Thimble to inspire kids and make them aware of the educational and career opportunities that we as individuals did not have growing up.

We were born out of a Startup Weekend, Startup Next, and flourished at various Maker Faires where we connected with parents, hobbyists, and educators. Through initial conversations with early customers, we decided to put our idea to the test by launching on Kickstarter which gave us the wings we needed to launch in 50 US states and 40 countries.  

We’re always moving forward and we love what we do. We’re a passionate bunch of educators, hardwarians, and hackers making education better one day at a time. If you’d like to shoot us a note, reach out at team@thimble.io.
