Co-founders and brothers Navid and Nadeem Nathoo are the driving forces of The Knowledge Society, which is hoping to inspire entrepreneurial and innovative thinking in youth between the ages of 13 to 17

…“[In school] you have to remember how to do a math equation or remember what year World War 2 was, but tomorrow’s world is not necessarily about remembering things. It’s knowing how to find things, knowing how to figure stuff out. It’s this mindset of confidence,” said Navid, the executive director of curriculum development at TKS.

The program runs in Calgary, San Francisco, and Toronto, with plans to make Toronto the home of its flagship location. The team has purchased a 6,000+ square feet, multi-level open space in the heart of the city. As construction continues into September, TKS hopes to build it into a Google-like space that encourages creative thinking with high ceilings and exposed brick. The pair worked with McKinsey & Company through Rahim Noormohamed, their lead partner for McKinsey and a TKS facilitator, to build a vision for how the space will look.
