"It is my life's goal to change education globally to be more fun and motivating for everyone" — Lauri Koutaniemi, co-founder and chairman @ Sumo Apps Ltd.

As per Mr. Joronen, who was deeply inspired by Jack Ma's ideas on the future of education, Sumo wants to create a framework through which to "measure creativity as a benchmark throughout each student's educational track,"
