Remote education is gaining on importance in current circumstances dictated by the COVID-19 epidemic. infoShare Academy, one of the leading programming schools in Poland, received EUR 497k investment from Black Pearls VC and Tomasz Józefacki as a coinvestor. The company will build an intelligent online education platform enabling remote learning of programming.
The key to a new profession: access to education
We have quickly switched into the remote learning mode. But we are aware that this way of education based on the traditional teaching methods has its limitations. E-learning is much more than just a video connection with a lecturer. These are innovative tools and learning methods that significantly increase the quality of education and its accessibility

The coronavirus epidemic and the restrictions associated with its eradication, will translate into serious macroeconomic effects - including increased unemployment. Quick retraining and the opportunity to get a job in an industry with a high demand for human work will therefore be a key need for many people.
The technological transformation in education will now significantly accelerate and new standards will be set quickly. We intend to actively participate in the process. Labor market suffers from a huge shortage of programmers. The online training offer opens up the opportunity to acquire this profession regardless of where you live. The company will also offer services that will increase the qualifications of programmers already present on the market. We are really glad to support this project as the leading investor.
