The Skool

We are an education company. We teach The Standard Processfor building successful web businesses.

What's the big idea?

There are thousands of jobs for coders, user experience designers and online marketing folk. Not to mention opportunities for startups. But technology projects are complex and no one teaches a standard process.
People want to get into tech, but they don’t know where to start and where to go. We teach the standard process for designing and building websites and apps to those who are hungry to get a job and make money in tech. All in a an online, visual, step-by-step education platform that is easy to follow, use and implement.

Describe the nearest player in your field.

Lynda.com & Team Treehouse are two of the largest competitors in the field. Lynda is one of the oldest players. She has over 1,360 courses across software, design and business. Treehouse is focused on Coding and Design and recently raised 4million in venture funding after a year in the market.

How are you different from that player?

1. We are not focused on teaching software only but on The Standard Process for successful web and app projects.
2.  The Skool OS - Combines the User Experience process with Agile Project Management and Customer Development.
3. Experience doing engaging LIVE content thisweekin.com/thisweekin-web/

How's the world different with your idea in it?

Success in the 21st century is not about technology but about having a common language for collaboration.
Our mission is to create and share this this language with the world. To bring business people, creative people, technologist and marketing folk together to plan and build a new planet.

Why are you the one to run with this idea?

I went to a top design school, I started my career at Razorfish, I build an agency to 4.3 million in 3 years. BUT non of those accomplishments qualify for this mission as having a dad as a preacher and a mom as a teacher. It is their spirit that I carry every day. To teach the world is my mission.

    Is this the URL?  http://groopskool.net/  It is not working for me.  Such a great concept.  Would love to go if there is another one.
