Edtech Start-up Networkers Launches Education Based on Interests & Growth Data


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 marketplace."

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.
