Clifton Manneh knows from experience that equitable education is essential.

The Brooklyn Park entrepreneur started Konduct trainer learning in 2018 with the hope of teaching thousands of students to code.

“The concept came about growing up in the community where there’s a lot of chaos, you know, we didn’t have access to resources and mentorship and things of that nature and such,” Manneh said.

Now, the online coding platform offers tutoring for all subjects.

“The concept was born in early March 2022 a parent contacted me like okay I see you teach students how to code but is there any possibility you know you can teach math and math reading to my son? It is currently struggling in these specific areas.

The request fueled the idea – but Manneh attributes his passion to his mother.

They immigrated to the United States from Monrovia, Liberia in 1999 and quickly discovered the opportunities to turn their passion into profit.

“When we moved here in early 1999, she had the idea to perfect her art of cooking, and she started a community organic restaurant and through that, I was introduced to entrepreneurship,” said Manneh said.

Manneh hopes the platform will inspire young people to pursue careers in tech, while simultaneously helping to bridge the education gap.

“To provide affordable, all-subject, quality tutoring to all students of all races, backgrounds, and ethnicities.”

Manneh says the tutoring platform will officially launch in June.
