The edtech company serves the non-academic learning needs of businesses and professionals by providing access to highly-curated specialist courses delivered by maestros – renowned experts – in subjects including tennis, basketball, dance, yoga, fitness, cooking and hairstyle.
Through their all–in–one content platform, clients access more than 25 hours of videos per course as well as tools to monitor their progress and performance, delivered by experts such as Toni Nadal; world’s most successful tennis coach, Božidar Maljković; considered one of the best European Basketball Coaches of all times as well as Kim Kimble – a top celebrity hairstylist whose clients include Beyoncé and Halle Berry.
The Barcelona-based company, which currently has more than 50 employees, was founded in 2016 by Aniol Brosa and Oriol Segundo whose previous venture was a franchising group of dance academies that became the largest in their sector in Europe.
“We aim to create a long-lasting company that serves society, our employees and our shareholders; while helping our “Maestros” to preserve their legacy in a meaningful, global and profitable way. We feel fortunate to create products and services that are fostering high-class education as a cornerstone for a better world.”
