Skillit is a marketplace of life skills taught through live experiences

Skillit is an online skills marketplace on a mission to enrich people’s lives through the power of human connection. Skillit is a platform for sharing and acquiring life skills through live learning, both in-person and virtually. We connect Makers with skills to teach and Dreamers with a desire to learn. On Skillit, Learners can collect limitless skills ranging from cooking to coding to cattle roping, on the path to cultivating the best version of themselves. And Makers can create new revenue streams sharing the skills love, on their own schedule, while raising their profile and building a community of people who share their passions. Skillit’s experience-based learning helps with knowledge retention in a hands-on environment where people can stop to ask questions and receive real time feedback as they progress. Not only is live learning more engaging, it also helps people follow through with their goals, unlike video-based learning which has a 97% drop off rate. Giving back is intrinsic to Skillit. Skillit Makers donate 1 out of every 10 classes they teach to underprivileged youth, giving them access to life-changing skills and opening doors for a better future. And for corporations, Skillit delivers CSR in a box, allowing employees to volunteer their skills while making a measurable difference in their communities.
