The home of hope and the tools that create dreams.

Before5am is a place where you always belong.

A place where we come together to be ourselves, to be better and build a better and brighter tomorrow.

Change. Is the reason why we teach, encourage and inspire.

I built Before5am for the world. It’s a place to learn, to inspire and to create. It’s a shining light for humanity.

The power to
dream again.

imagine a world of dreams

Without an ability to dream, to wonder and to imagine – we are lost. It is our human duty to encourage those around us to believe in their dreams and raise each other up.

We don’t hope that one day will be better. We make every day better and brighter by actively supporting and educating people every day. That’s our mission at Before5am and it’s how we plan to build our world.

about before5am

The big idea that is Before5am.

We build people. We support people. We allow people to pursue their dreams and transform their lives – it’s what we’ve always done from day one.

We teach. We encourage. We lead. But most of all we walk hand in hand with people from all walks of life to help them become the best version of themselves.

We don’t wait. We shape humanity and empower people to find their voice through creative expression, improved communication and have more control over their lives through our deep understanding of modern life and social sciences. Our data set is human connection – our data comes from conversation, real human emotions and real people’s lives.

We build – Well equipped people and the leaders of tomorrow.

Learning innovation

We have always believed that learning takes place in relevant places.

We use modern and interactive media platforms to deliver our global curriculum and educational resources to people all over the world.

Taking learning to the people. Right where they are. We chose not to hide our words, lessons and strategies for living in complicated books and formats that sit on shelves.

We use art and design along with literature as a vessel to educate and open up the doorway to transformative learning – available and easily accessible to everyone.

We go beyond the boundaries and limiting factors that stop personal growth and life based learning.

Our mission has and always will be to make real world education accessible, interactive and relevant. It’s the basis for our vision for humanity.

Pioneering – learning and teaching formats.

Before5am has been a pioneer in creating inspiring and reinforced education delivered in a range of informative, engaging and relevant formats that can be easily implemented into one’s life.

Creating an understanding and life implementation are the two things we value the most. Not theory or data alone.

At the heart of Before5am is our obsessive need to innovate and create better worlds, environments and people – that starts with re-imaging how we learn.
