Arm was founded by a dozen engineers working from a converted barn in Cambridge, UK, a quarter of a century ago. By the end of 2015, that team had grown to more than 4,200 people in sites around the world. Arm gives its people the capabilities, processes and infrastructure to enable them to develop and thrive as the business scales and strengthens. At the same time, we seek to nurture a work culture that remains true to our founders’ original vision; empowering our engineers to be innovative and drive Arm-based technology into all areas where compute happens, maximizing their creative potential and enabling all of our people to be their brilliant selves.
Arm worked with its technology Partners and the BBC on the micro:bit, a pocket-sized device that’s being given free to every 12 year old in the UK to engage youngsters in computer coding.
Literacy Bridge saves lives and improves the livelihoods of impoverished families through comprehensive programs that provide on-demand access to locally relevant knowledge. At the heart of the program is the Talking Book, an innovative low-cost audio computer.
Our strategic partnership with UNICEF began in May 2015 with a program that has shown how wearable technology can change children’s lives for the better. We are also working with UNICEF on its technology platform, U-Report, which supports 1.7 million young people across Africa.
