What Founders in the Region are saying

Be a better you founder

"The learning experience focuses on building the learners' inquiry skills, promoting social learning behaviours and building a meaningful community for continuous learning."


Communication 101 founder

"This course equips learners with essential communication skills.  Students will learn the art of communicating from both sides: as a speaker, and as a listener. Learn how to use your words, tone, expressions and body language effectively to navigate through a variety of conversations."


Firas Alsuwaigh

"First Principles Thinking is the most important quality he looks for in employees. Most people apply complex solutions to difficult problems. The best people find simple ones. Simple solutions require you to reduce problems to their first principles."

Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Ninja Van

Future Skills Recommended by Successful Founders

Communication Skills
Software Engineering is largely about communication; writing code and documentation that teammates can understand, explaining technical products and decisions to non-technical people. Engineers with poor communication do not pass interviews, at least not with the good tech companies.
Kai, CEO of Rocket Academy
Critical Thinking Skills
"The ones who are strong in logic / critical thinking are able to get to the root of the issue and untangle it permanently thereafter, whereas if one takes things at face value only the issue-at-hand gets resolved."
Naga, CEO of ErudiFi
Character Education Skills
The solution for finding and preserving self-motivation is to keep learning and can be linked with being optimistic because in the lens of a manager, my best recruits are usually those who truly enjoy their work, know why they're there and have good self learning skills.
Tu Ngo, co-founder and Chairwoman of  YOLA Education
