App Inventor Foundation

App Inventor Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that empowers people across the globe to create apps that improve their lives, uplift their communities, and change the world. App Inventor is a free and open-source platform created at MIT and Google that helps enable anyone of any age, including those who may not think of themselves as coders, to create highly functional apps for real, effective change in their communities.

We were founded in 2007 by Professor Hal Abelson at MIT and Mark Friedman at Google, and have since grown to 15 Million registered users across 195 countries, with 1 Million monthly active users. Having been incubated at MIT for the past decade by some of the best researchers, scientists, and engineers in the world, App Inventor is now expanding beyond an MIT research project into a global nonprofit organization.
