Qureos, a UAE-based edtech and remote work marketplace that is changing how people upskill and get jobs across the globe, plans to grow the uptake of its platform by 10 times this year in its race to create 100 million jobs over the next few years. The startup has today announced closing a $3 million pre-seed funding to accelerate this growth.

Qureos was founded in August last year by Alexander Epure, Mehrad Yaghmai and Usama Nini in a bid to make mentorship more accessible to individuals that are starting out in their careers, or looking to switch jobs.

The startup has grown into a platform that allows cohort-based synchronized learning led by industry experts (mentors), who use the platform to monetize their expertise.

Qureos also matches the trainees on its platform with projects in their respective fields of study.

Epure added that Qureos learning is a shift from self-paced massive open online courses (MOOC), which he said are often hard to scale because they require constant updating.

At Qureos, trainees are assigned practical tasks to solve in groups on behalf of client companies.

To date, Qureos has attracted more than 25,000 trainees, 200 mentors from big-tech companies like Google, Cisco, and Amazon, and 300 business partners that are using its platform to complete tasks.

Trainees pay a fee while companies pay subscription charges based on the frequency and types of job postings.

The startup’s user-base originates from 133 countries, with about 32% being from Africa, and mainly residing in South Africa and the North Africa region.

Epure said they are creating new learning and work opportunities for the millions of youth in the Gen Z and millennial demographics, who are vastly unemployed or underemployed due to a lack of marketable skills that are often not taught in traditional curriculums. The startup was recently selected by Dubai Future Accelerators to solve the skills gap of the unemployed and those entering the job market.
