Workkola was born in Europe, at the beginning of 2015 in Malaga, Spain. They quickly moved to Boston, MA where they were accelerated during the summer 2015. Our mission is to bridge the gap between higher education and the labor market.
We are the online community of “sharing-talent” that connects students worldwide with international startups on a high-impact/on-demand project basis.
Undergrad & grad students. Gain valuable experience, reputation and improve your skillset by collaborating with international startups.
Startups. We have a pool of vetted and talented students looking for collaborating with you in a wide range of different impactful projects.
Our core values and beliefs
Nowadays, higher-ed students finish their education with a strong theoretical baggage, but with none or insufficient practical experience in their field, with no tools for differentiation and a poor network.
Startups have usually limited resources and team; team members have to deal with a ton of different tasks they are not experts in, and need external help for completing specific projects. In addition they have issues to find and manage talent in a super competitive society.
What if we create an online community where students, professors, startups and other stakeholders collaborate and work together for win-win relationships?
At Workkola we believe that a better and redefined relationship between education and real-world is possible
We seek talent.
We believe in education as a basic pillar for social improvement.
We look to redefine the way of approaching education in a more realistic and efficient way.
We merge education and technology, we maximize the concept of ed-tech.
We believe in entrepreneurship as an economic catalyzer and a lifestyle.
We fight for a better access of the students to the labor market, more prepared, more adapted.
Merit is the only rule.
We help startups find talent and talent find startups.
We are #experientiallearning.
In collaboration we trust.
