Our Story

INNOVATION THROUGH PASSION

Crescerance began its journey in 2011 with the simple idea of wanting to make it easier for schools to truly connect and engage with students, parents, staff, alumni and the community at large. That’s how embr came to be, ensuring every stakeholder could be connected through a mobile app, while offering quick and easy access to the information they needed most.

As time went on, our school partnerships strengthened beyond the actual development of their branded and customized mobile school apps. Time and time again we would meet students that had a keen interest in not just utilizing the app, but eager to learn more about the actual creation process. We heard the same enthusiasm from teachers that were intent on bringing a learning app development perspective to their students.

This is how MAD-learn was born…from the curiosity of our students, from their quest to know and absorb more and from our passion to feed that curiosity.

As we remain steadfast in our strategic growth of product offerings, solutions and the individuals and markets we serve, a model of engagement and innovation will always be at the forefront.
