Our journey with Stairway began in 2019, when Connect led the pre-seed round of this promising digital learning startup. Back then, Stairway was only 6 months old, but it was already changing the way students felt about studying — specifically about studying Maths.

A year and a half later, we’re thrilled to check in with Stairway’s founder and CEO, Charles Williamson, to chat about how they’re inspiring the next generations of STEM learners, how they’ve built a dedicated following of students, teachers, and parents alike, and what their vision of the future holds.
