Founderz expands to Portugal
Founderz, the Unconventional Business School that focuses on skill disruption, equipping individuals with the knowledge to navigate the future, could open in Portugal in 2024.
The CEO and co-founder of the company, Pau Garcia-Milà, told Jornal Económico that despite its campus being virtual, there will be meeting points with gatherings of pupils.
Founderz will enter the Portuguese market with an Artificial Intelligence training programme with the aim of meeting the growing demand of AI technical knowledge. The programme will provide a fundamental foundation and models for using AI, machine learning and prompt engineering. The programme will start in October.
The AI training programme has been launched in partnership with Microsoft Portugal and was presented on Tuesday, September 19 in Lisbon.
“What we’ve identified is that Portuguese companies are starting to implement the latest AI tools in their processes and we think that our training could be very appealing in this context, especially given that our pupils will get a Microsoft certificate on completing the programme”, said Pau Garcia-Milà.
The three month training programme is delivered in a 100% online format using a micro learning method. Once they sign up, the students will get unlimited access to content that is constantly updated to keep pace with the latest sector trends.
Founderz has an international community of around 7,000 pupils in 20 countries and 200 companies that use its training programmes.
