Story

At Kira Talent, our vision is to help every student find their place in the world. In 2012, co-founders Emilie Cushman and Konrad Listwan-Ciesielski came together to tackle a problem: The current higher education admissions process is too one-dimensional and doesn’t allow applicants to tell their story. Excellent students are missed by admissions teams every year because of their test scores and transcripts, even if they have a great deal to contribute to the classroom.

That’s why we built Kira: Admissions software designed to make assessing applicants smarter. We want to make the admissions process more efficient, effective, and fair for both admissions teams and their applicants.

Kira is now the leading assessment platform for higher education institutions, serving 160+ clients in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America.
