The Knowledge Roundtable was founded by Jared Rand, a seacoast New Hampshire native. He launched The Knowledge Roundtable in July 2012 with the mission of making knowledge accessible to everyone.
During the first year and a half, he grew the business to encompass two physical locations (Exeter and Dover NH), built a fast-growing tutor directory that spanned the Northeast, and hired KnowRo’s first two employees.
The business has since redirected its focus on the tutor directory. As of early 2016, the company officially handed control of the SAT prep courses over to instructors Paul and Stephanie, and converted the commission-based directory into a commission-free one. The tutor search engine now includes courses, books, software and other items to provide students with a more complete portfolio of educational options.
