Memrise was founded by Greg Detre, who recently completed his PhD in the neuroscience of forgetting at Princeton; and Ed Cooke, a Grandmaster of Memory who can learn a 1000 digit number in an hour.

Together, we want to transform the speed and ease with which anybody can learn. We started at the deep end with Chinese characters, one of the hardest and most critical learning problems around. With the help of our users, we've since begun to cover dozens of languages from around the world.
