Hello, We Are ManageBac.

We provide a Curriculum First Learning Platform for the world's leading international schools. Founded in 2006, we serve over 800,000 students and 2,900 schools in 120 countries.

Our Core Principles

We deliver efficiency.

We measure our success by the amount of time saved and paperwork eliminated.

Our schools are our investors.

They fund our development by paying for our service and by providing us with new ideas. We answer to them.

Software should be affordable.

Which is why our service is priced reasonably with no server required.

We are patient long-term builders.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Energy and persistence conquer all things.” We work hard to build great software and to exceed expectations.

We don’t nickel and dime.

Our competitors love charging fees for setup, online training, maintenance, and upgrades. We don’t surprise you with hidden fees, and aim to operate as transparently as possible.

Great service matters.

We take our responsibility seriously. We pride ourselves on our fast e-mail replies and 24/7 accessibility. Whether you are in Hong Kong, Geneva or New York, we are awake when you are.

Adapted from Softbank Masayoshi Son’s Success Factors

A: Passion We must love the business and wake up excited every day to go to work. We must believe that the passion will be there in 10-20 years.

B: Blue Ocean Wave There must be a ten-year tail wind of secular compound growth within the market and strong rational reasons supporting the market growth i.e. not growth resulting from short-term government policy or market distortions, but from healthy and sustainable development with sound logic & customer success.

C: Global Scale Leader Within ten years, there must be the potential for the company to be a global scale market leader.

D: Build & Stack There must be a natural opportunity to grow through building extensions from the core product i.e. the first product must function as the root of the tree with branches developing over time.

E: Staircase The business should have strong recurring revenue with minimal churn. It should not be possible to fall backwards over time even if growth slows, the past progress should serve as a floor.

F: Sustainable Competitive Advantage There should be a competitive advantage in the business that will increase over time e.g. limited competition, network effects, cost scale advantages, etc.
