Houston - August 14, 2018
KiwiTech, LLC, a startup accelerator that has created an ecosystem of 180+ innovative companies in 12+ industries undergoing disruption, today announced the launch of TakeAClass – an easy-to-use e-learning platform that provides an online resource to support academic, recreational and professional class searches.
"TakeAClass is one of our marquee portfolio companies, and we're excited to be part of Amy's vision," said Mohsin Syed, EVP & Chief Startup Officer, KiwiTech. "In the life of an early-stage startup, every milestone calls for a celebration because it arrives after a lot of grind and painful sacrifices. We are thrilled with this opportunity to celebrate an eventful first milestone for the TakeAClass team," added Mohsin. "KiwiTech will be hosting a launch party on August 21 in Houston, Texas to bring together partners and early users that will be the first benefactors from the TakeAClass platform."
TakeAClass takes the drama out of the class search process, makes it easy for consumers to find exactly what they want – including art, cooking, dance, computer, skydiving classes and thousands of other classes. They're providing a much-needed solution for the many moms, students, professionals, and active learners who struggle to find local and online classes.
"As a busy mom and professional the last thing I have time for is to spend hours online searching for swimming or piano classes for my daughter or a salsa dancing or computer class for me. I discovered that when needing to take a class there was no online platform that immediately came to mind, so I would have to search the Internet or ask my friends and family for recommendations. So, I created TakeAClass," said Amy Olivieri, President and CEO, TakeAClass.
"I'd like to thank KiwiTech and their amazing team for their invaluable technology support, mentorship, and, of course, Demo Days, where KiwiTech's select portfolio startups get an opportunity to pitch to (and connect with) accredited and active investors."
