Excited to share an update about beginning of next phase for Crio.Do #Crio2.0
Starting this November 2022, we are joining hands with Skill-Lync - a leading edtech company and market leader in core engineering education. With this strategic acquisition, Crio becomes a subsidiary of Skill-Lync and will continue to operate as an Independent brand focussing on computer science and new-age digital careers.
Both Crio and Skill-Lync were started to solve a fundamental issue in higher education, i.e. making engineers industry-relevant. Crio focused on Computer Science while Skill-Lync focused on Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics and Civil Engineering. The underlying approach of project-based learning approach and #LearnByDoing is a common thread connecting us. By coming together, we have an unique opportunity to build one of the best higher education platforms providing experiential learning at scale, impacting thousands of careers.
We strongly believe this synergy is going to help Crio grow much faster in our x-to-100x journey as we can leverage a lot of Skill-Lync's learnings. In fact, for the past few months, we have already been able to leverage synergies, increasing our revenue by 3x.
Now that Crio.Do is part of a larger group, we are looking forward to leverage more resources and partnerships to make our signature learning experience and proven career outcomes even better for our customers.
We see this partnership as an opportunity to accelerate our growth, spread our impact to a much larger base of students and professionals and build a sustainable & long-standing business.
While we embark on this exciting journey ahead, we would like to take this opportunity to thank and share our sincere gratitude towards:
- The entire Crio team for all their contributions in making Crio what it is today. Looking forward to learning and growing together with all of you from here onwards!
