Kahoot! was founded in 2012 by Morten Versvik, Johan Brand, and Jamie Brooker.

Kahoot! was founded in 2012 by Morten Versvik, Johan Brand, and Jamie Brooker who, in a joint project with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), teamed up with Professor Alf Inge Wang, and were later joined by entrepreneur Åsmund Furuseth. The technology is based on research conducted by Kahoot! co-founder Morten Versvik, a student of Professor Wang’s at the time, for his Master’s degree at NTNU. 

In 2013, Kahoot! was opened to the public, and it’s been quite a ride ever since!

Play is the first language we learn. It’s how we discover the world and understand our place in it. When we make learning fun, we make it engaging for everyone.


We are curious

Curiosity is part of human nature, and it lies at the heart of all great endeavors. It’s what turns learners into amazing leaders — and keeps those leaders learning.


We are inclusive

We’re team players at Kahoot! and believe that no learner, or employee, should ever be left out. Kahoot! strives to ensure that everyone has the chance to succeed.
