Almanacs mission is to democratize access to 21st century skills, insights, and tools so that no one is limited by knowledge in pursuit of their potential.

Through our own experiences, weve seen professionals at digital businesses waste too much time trying to find answers they can trust that help them do their jobs better. We believe this problem isnt rooted in a lack of knowledge or expertise in the world, but in the deficiencies of tools we rely on to access, share, and improve how work gets done.

We replace tools like Confluence and Google Docs to help individuals quickly access knowledge within and across companies that they can trust deeply.
