Aloki is a start up creating a platform that enables anyone to teach or learn anything. Our mission is to increase accessibility to education, one lesson at a time. Initially, the focus will be on core high school subjects with a selection of quality tutors across NSW. These tutors come from UNSW, USYD, have worked in ABC, Google, are former teachers, or are high achieving recent graduates, and are committed to enriching the lives of students so they can reach their full potential.
Founded in October 2016 as a one-man team, Aloki has since grown to a team of 5 with over 600 registered students and tutors. This is with the backing of H2 Ventures, a leading Australian venture capital firm. We are constantly working hard to improve our services, and we're seeing incredible growth. After months of development, our app will be ready to launch mid-November. This is an exciting time for us, and we can't wait to share the journey with you.

Zaver Sima - Founder
Zaver, originally from Auckland, founded ALOKI in October 2016 with a vision to break down the barriers to education. Zaver's mission in creating ALOKI is to enable students and people anywhere who wish to learn to have access to the right people and resources regardless of social factors.
Zaver has worked as a Civil Engineer across NZ, AU, UK, undertaken aid work in Samoa, has previously owned a business in fitness and has a strong background in sales across enterprise technology and real estate.
Zaver believes the key to his success and being able to adapt in these varied industries was largely due to having access to mentors and education through peer to peer learning. It is this peer to peer learning he wishes to foster on the ALOKI platform.
ALOKI demonstrated the app at the 2017 UNSW Open Day and were blown away, by the end of the day over 250 students across high school and university year levels had signed up to use the App upon it s launch later this year.
