KiwiTech, LLC, a technology services provider that invests in tech startups, has announced a strategic partnership with TakeAClass, a high performing, easy-to-use platform that provides an online resource to support academic, recreational and professional class searches. As part of the partnership, KiwiTech will provide exclusive technology development capabilities to TakeAClass.
"KiwiTech is excited to partner with TakeAClass," said Rakesh Gupta, CEO of KiwiTech. "Their platform offers consumers fast access to academic and recreational local and online classes. Leveraging our deep domain expertise, we're committed to helping TakeAClass achieve their mission."
"TakeAClass takes the drama out of the class search process, making it easy for consumers to find exactly what they want – including fitness, cooking, dance, computer, skydiving classes and thousands of other classes. The idea behind TakeAClass is to organize all the information needed to make an informed decision in one place. We allow consumers to search class listings for free," explained Amy E. Olivieri, President and CEO of TakeAClass.
"Instructors, schools, and organizations will have the convenience of listing their classes, which will help increase their visibility and get more students with stunning profiles, photos, class descriptions and schedules," she added.
"We seek to take advantage of the exciting blockchain technology through the TakeAClass Foundation. The goal of the foundation is to provide global access to education while removing the barriers to pay for it by introducing the ClassCoin, a new cryptocurrency that will change the way payments are accepted for academic institutions."
"We're pleased to join hands with KiwiTech and view them as the ideal technology partner to help us launch our platform and take it to the next level."
