EduSpaze, an Enterprise-Singapore backed edtech accelerator, has included Eskwelabs in its second cohort of startups. Seven early-stage edutech companies from Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines (us!) have been selected from over 200 applicants across 30 countries.
We believe that joining the EduSpaze accelerator will expedite the actualization of our mission—of making in-demand 21st century skills accessible to equip people for the future of work—on a global scale. This is more crucial than ever because it’s actually estimated that by 2025, 50% of all employees will need reskilling.
Our commitment to bringing the best of online & community-based learning has made us the premiere online data upskilling school in the Philippines. In just two years, for Filipinos from various age groups and different socioeconomic backgrounds, we’ve seen lives forever changed, careers unquestionably boosted, and mindsets shifted towards a deeper appreciation of what education can do in a person’s life and for society as a whole.
We’re joining Eduspaze to expand regionally. The first step to scaling up and becoming a major player in the game begins with EduSpaze—we are looking forward to being taken under their wing and receiving the best mentorship and training any early-stage edtech startup could ask for.
The bespoke 100-day program—which had already begun on January 26, 2021—they’ll be providing us will surely level up the ways we’ve already been redesigning digital and data skills education; in the end, it all goes back to the learners who make up the true beating heart of Eskwelabs.
