What drives us
Leaving education to its own devices isn’t enough. Because people get left behind, fall through the cracks, don’t believe in their potential deep down. Most often these are students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
You benefit. Society benefits.
To give maximum impact to the education system we created a way to optimise the student journey at its most critical stage – the beginning! It is something that countless colleges continue to struggle with. We’ve built a powerful solution to support learners when they need it most.

He is completely dedicated to supporting at least 10 million students in completing their education and decreasing the skills gaps that are developing around the world.

The Purlos story
In 2019, David’s experience inspired him to leave his job behind and pursue his vision by setting up Purlos. To make it a reality he set about creating a solution teaming up with co-founder Mo Salam, to prevent disadvantaged students from getting stuck in the same uncertain predicament about their future.
After meeting through a mutual friend, David and Mo started Purlos and the rest is history.
