About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

With over 100 million unemployed youths globally, there is a clear crisis of young people facing significant challenges in entering the workforce, especially in developing countries.
VinciU has been Inspired by our (the founders') personal experiences such as the need for a young supportive learning community and the pain of our immediate environment as the youth lack job opportunities.

How does your innovation work in practice?

inciU offers a progressive two-stage learining path or bootcamp called “the tech career program”, including a discovery stage and a specialization stage that goes from the basics to becoming a “junior” category professional. The platform provides on-demand courses and weekly live group sessions led by a peer to peer methology, with a focus on providing digital professional hard skills and essential soft skills. VinciU is also working on implementing AI-driven tools to enhance the learning experience and drive scalability.

How has it been spreading?

Traditional press took us from 0 to 600 B2C Students in our first pilot year. Now we are aiming to amplify our B2C model by adding a B2B strategy becoming a digital K-12 content publisher offering our platform and the courses to K-12 Schools at an affordable annual license. Student will learn online and the school teachers will become part of it as facilitators to manage activities and peer to peer dynamics in the classroom to reinforce knowledge.
