Arist started as a way to deliver learning in war zones, one text message at a time.

A few years ago, we started Arist with a simple mission: delivering entrepreneurship courses to high school students in the Yemeni conflict zone.

Unfortunately, internet and laptop access was limited. However, almost everyone had access to a phone and text messages. Hence, the text message course.
At Arist, we care deeply about making learning more accessible and effective.

Since we invented the text message course in 2018, we've delivered 100,000+ courses to students, frontline employees, and managers alike.

As part of our commitment to access, Arist partners with non-profits and other social-good organizations to deliver impactful learning at scale at a discounted rate. Request discounted access here.
