Latamlist – Ubits, a Colombian corporate training platform, sees a spike in users as most companies migrate to a remote form of work. The edtech tripled its userbase as well as increased requests from companies tenfold during the crisis.
“We’re already competing at Silicon Valley level, having the advantage of offering corporate content in Spanish to train companies,” said co-founder Marta Forero in an interview with Forbes.
The edtech has over 350 courses or “bits”. At the moment, he most popular courses are about leadership for remote teams and business creativity and redesign. They also recently launched shorter 5-minute skill courses called “nanobits”.
As a result of companies undergoing layoffs due to the crisis, Ubits also extended access to its platform for an additional year to the newly unemployed. In the near future, they expect to offer more courses on soft skills, personal growth, and stress management.
Ubits operates in eight countries, and among its biggest clients, has companies like General Electric, Alsea, Falabella, Homecenter, Grupo Sura, and Terpel. About 60% of its operations are in Bogota, and the rest are in Mexico City and Lima.
