CBTec Oy has been established by ex-Nokia and ex-Meego employees in February 2012 with a vision is to democratize education with technology. This vision comes from belief that education should be available to all and everywhere. Going back to history, the great philosopher Plato started the first Academy in the world in an olive tree grove, also known as Elia in Greek. It was a remarkable event which for the foundation for human education. However, Plato’s Academy was available only for people of Athens. Applying the same philosophy and taking it further, CBTec believes education should be available to everyone all over the world, thus Eliademy was created.
