An award-winning tech scale-up launched in 2017, Motimate is a mobile-first application that makes learning fun, easy and accessible for everyone. Motimate employs 40 people in 7 countries and is the result of more than 15 years of experience helping some of Scandinavia’s largest companies make learning accessible and engaging for their people.

Working with 200 companies like DNB, Varner, REMA 1000, Narvesen, Jernia, Telia, AF Gruppen, BI and Atea, we have learned that people love learning with Motimate. Collectively, our customers complete over 3,500 Motis every single day! We’ve now reached more than 130,000 learners in 35 countries.

This extraordinary company, despite its rapid growth, always remembers its employees and makes the working hours feel like a meeting with good friends
