Quipper was founded by serial entrepreneur Masa Watanabe, who previously co-founded the massively successful DeNA in Japan.

Their goal is to make mobile learning accessible on a global scale. And not just your typical schoolroom curriculum, but ultra-niche subject areas too. So far, Quipper apps have been downloaded by over 8 million people, across the globe.

Quipper Quiz is the company’s general-purpose quiz app where anyone can create and share a quiz on the web and mobile. It’s a good example of Quipper’s intention to become a platform with crowd-sourced content.

Quipper’s users have created quizzes on all sorts of things, and now have over 3,000 topics on everything from TV programs, and Russian and Chinese language learning, to obscure rock bands and even UK airport codes.

They have also got full-fledged study apps aimed at US highschool students (StraightAce, Quipper’s partnership project with Benesse), and students in East Asia (Quipper Courses, which features content for school kids in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia), as well as Japan, where they are working in partnership with telecoms giant KDDI.
