Blanno was founded in 2018 in Cardiff, Wales (United Kingdom!) with a mission to change the way that we learn for the better.
Fed up of boring, long courses full of jargon we set out to make things simple to save people time and money. This is when Blanno began.
The name "Blanno" comes from the Welsh word "to plant". Our logo is based around the birch tree which in Celtic mythology symbolizes new beginnings. This represents our new beginning as a start up company, as well as our desire to help learners to prosper and grow to achieve the best that they can.
