Qureos is a ‘learn to earn’ marketplace that makes it easy for emerging talent to learn in-demand skills from world-class industry experts through cohort-based learning paths led by world-class industry experts that match the hiring demand from Qureos’ business partners.
Qureos has raised $3M million in its pre-seed round led by Dubai-based early-stage VC COTU Ventures and New York-based early-stage VC Colle Capital as it seeks to fast track growth and democratize “Learn to Earn” opportunities for talent globally.
The round also saw participation from global and regional investors, including Globivest, Plutus21 Capital, Dubai Angel Investors, and AlZayani Venture Capital. Several angel investors, including current and former leaders of Swvl, Boston Consulting Group, Moelis & Company, Careem, Cisco Systems, Koinz, Message Bird, Bain & Company, Hiperpool, ADNOC, QIA, and other notable individuals.
Queros was founded in August 2021 by Alexander Epure, Mehrad Yaghmai, and Usama Nini. The Dubai Future Accelerators selected Queros to solve the skill gap in transitioning from campus to the workplace and between jobs.
Set to fast-track growth and democratize “Learn to Earn” opportunities for talent globally, Qureos is building an experiential learning community to change how people connect, learn and work. Qureos is helping learners from over 133 countries to acquire in-demand skills through cohort-based learning paths led by world-class industry experts that match the hiring demands of business partners.
“Learning and hiring are disconnected, and Qureos aims to leverage its unique position at the nexus of these two markets through an experiential learning community where emerging talent can learn from industry experts and gain experience through mentor-led hiring cohorts from businesses,” said Alexander Epure, Co-Founder and CEO at Qureos.
With the native network effects of the platform, Qureos has been able to achieve phenomenal organic growth of 25,000+ users and attract mentors from leading organizations, including Google, Paypal, Amazon, Cisco, and more than 200 business partners globally.
Investors: VC COTU Ventures, VC Colle Capital, Globivest, Plutus21 Capital, Dubai Angel Investors, and AlZayani Venture Capital.
