Why We Invested

Almost 50% of Brazilians do not complete elementary school and an additional 16% do not complete high school. Brazilian adults need affordable and accessible training opportunities to productively participate in today's labor market. eduK provides just that. eduK’s video-on-demand catalogue contains over 1,200 available classes delivered by celebrities and experts from the field. The courses provide assessible and high-quality resources to "solopreneurs" across the country looking to use their talents and passions to increase their incomes and livelihoods.

What I am most proud of having founded and motivates me to work every day at eduK is to realize the impact we have on our students' lives. It is very common to hear stories of people who have achieved financial independence from the knowledge gained on our platform, it's amazing!
