LONDON, Aug. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Networkers.co,
a London-Barcelona start up aims to revolutionise the
education space by changing the "fundamental pillars" of the
industry, as described by co-founder Marc
Barr: "the current education system is not keeping pace with
technological progress and consequently people are lacking the
skills they need in the fast-changing job market".
The Edtech firm suggests educational content to its users based
on their interests and current growth stage, as Denisse Donoso, another founding member, pointed
out: "Nowadays people are grouped in classrooms by age, even though
many of them have different interests and learning pace, so
incentives are not aligned to learn quicker or discover the
unconventional. At Networkers we first learn from our followers,
who are entrepreneurs at different stages of progress, and take
them through a self-paced journey that goes from learning practical
skills to actually launching a product or service into the
Networkers also takes advantage of proven "classroom"
techniques, including encouraging "group learning", but, in this
case, the group learning is between like-minded people who are at
similar stages of progress, as co-founder James Billot outlined: "People in groups are
held accountable when they have common goals; our role is to
understand the profile of each user and bring them together to
build communities that share goals and interests, with the
convenience of remote collaboration on-demand. In essence, we
enable community learning to achieve a greater goal."
The start up has a media-first approach, producing educational
content within an entertainment framework. The founders are split
between London and Barcelona. The company was founded in mid 2020
and is already backed by early-stage Venture Capital firms who are
aligned with the goal of disrupting the education industry by
applying technology and data analysis techniques. Networkers has a
global presence, supports multiple languages, and has stated its
desire to "expand aggressively" in the coming months.
