Engage with professors

Watch and engage with professor answers!


Brothers on a mission.

In 2016, information flowed through our feeds like water through a firehose. At the same time, questions about the world around us went unanswered. Seeing the amount of untapped curiosity, misinformation, and questionable sources in the public sphere, we sought to create a platform that elevated the conversation. Minque was born. 

Driven by your questions, Minque's mission is to enhance the global conversation by connecting user curiosity with expert answers from professors.  We want our users to get the quality explanations they deserve, from the brightest minds we can find.  

In a world of unlimited questions and unreliable information, Minque strives to explain the world around you.
