The best way to research and apply to Universities confidently. Say goodbye to college application stress and anxiety.

Our Story

Ryusei founded Reach Best at 17 in order to help his friends and himself be better prepared to apply to Universities. Applying during the COVID-19 pandemic as an international student from Tokyo, he realized there was a huge problem of transparency and uncertainty with college admissions systems. So, in July 2020, he built the first algorithms to predict chances of admission to reduce students’ anxiety with University applications, setting the foundation for our mission to build AI for students.

In May 2023, we expanded our product line to support high schools establish AI-powered University placement programs. After a series of pilots, we realized that schools and formal education institutions are the best way to bring AI into the hands of students, so we decided to launch our School App. We see schools as one of the vital components for advancing the standardization of AI-assisted Education.

We envision a future where students can absorb centuries’ worth of knowledge with a click of a button. We envision a future where humans no longer go to school to memorize and re-learn past generations’ knowledge, but rather to dream and pioneer new frontiers of understanding from day one.
