Our Story

Sdui started in 2015 as a school project at a high school in Westerwald. Daniel Zacharias, Jan Micha Kroll and other students noticed back then: Relevant information does not end up where it is needed in everyday school life. There was no change in sight – so they developed their own solutions to these problems: As part of a school project, the students worked on an app that makes substitution plans digitally available to everyone. The project won several awards at the “Jugend forscht” contest in the years to follow.

Some schools were interested in the app. Convinced that their idea could make an important contribution to the digitalisation of schools, Daniel and Micha founded Sdui GmbH in February 2018 after graduating from high school.

Today, Sdui is the fastest growing start-up in the German edtech industry with offices in Koblenz and Berlin, around 150 employees and more than 10,000 schools and day care centres reached (as of February 2022). In order to reach even more educational institutions with Sdui’s solutions, the platform is also being offered in other European countries.
