Our Mission

Zenarc strives to educate teens with free, concentrated peer learning
for those who want to attain knowledge in unconventional fields.

Our Story

In June of 2020, the founders of Zenarc all joined a discord server as we all participated as part of University of Pennsylvania Wharton summer program. As we introduced ourselves and conversed with each other online, we realized that with our varying business strengths and passions; we had the potential to create something great. We brainstormed ideas for a startup, which ultimately brought us to the idea of Zenarc, a learning platform created by teens, for teens. 

By bringing students from different backgrounds and sharing their passions while learning from others to gain new skill sets, we are able to foster an innovative and enthusiastic community that will help students during unprecedented times. As we continue to grow as a platform, our mission still remains the same: to educate through peer learning. We believe that peer learning will spark new ideas and allows for a more effective teaching style as it helps users gain a new perspective on the content at hand. In the future, we hope that our platform can extend to reach and connect students worldwide, while educating teens.
