Raising the Bar is a non-profit organization that's changing the way people learn in everyday life. The co-founders consist of a well-rounded group of individuals, including doctors and bankers, who are trying to make education part of people's daily routine instead of something that's done separately.

The aim of the group is to target people who would not otherwise want to sit down and set aside a specific time to watch videos such as TED talks. The founders want the experience to be comfortable and relaxed, which is where the bar location comes in. These events can even be viewed as networking opportunities, as groups of like-minded people can come together to be educated on various topics, then discuss.

Raising the Bar breaks down the idea of a classroom environment and makes knowledge more accessible.
