SkipQ in the News

I would like to make mention of at least one Pakistani ed-tech/training startup ‘SkipQ’ (https://www.skipq.org/) that has identified this gap [between industry and academia] and developed a successful business model that addresses it. Currently they are focused on meeting the demand for cloud computing skills in the market. They select cohorts of fresh graduates, train them on a tool/ platform and contemporary development workflows for about six weeks. In this time, they bridge the gap between what they know and what employers need them to know, while paying them a small stipend. Those who negotiate the programme successfully have a job waiting for them. This model is working so well that multiple cohorts are pre-booked for hiring by employers.
