About the Author

Jonas Koblin

Jonas Koblin was born 1978 in Germany. At age 11 he was playing football at FC Bayern, followed by a month with John Kluge—then the richest man in the US. A high school dropout, Koblin went to explore Asia in 1998, leading to the inception of WE DO, a non-profit incubator, and OSTASINN, a charity event series. He later interned at Leni Stern Recordings in New York and in 2002 started studying, and his first business venture, in Bangkok, Thailand. By 2007, Koblin was juggling college and three companies in eyewear, design, and retail.

When his companies reached $5 million in revenues, and gained high-profile customers like Madonna, Koblin prioritized personal growth over wealth, and took a step back. In 2016 he completed the Hoffman Process, and started a family.

In 2017, he launched Sprouts Schools learning videos and in 2018 Mali, a virtual companion for new mothers and the Sprouts Kindergarten.

As of 2023, Sprouts Schools delivers lessons in the social sciences to millions of students every month in 10 different languages. The Mali apps serve thousands of mothers daily and the kindergarten serves 40 families. Koblin lives in Bangkok with his wife and three children.
