Where are we at?

At Curious Connect we run programmes with online personalised coaching and automatised prospective application email campaigns to help each student reach their dream apprenticeships, ranging from data to business development. We commercialised our programmes for higher educational institutions in Paris in November 2019 and have had a 75% success rate - as opposed to 52% failure on average in France!

We are currently accelerating our sales and operations: Curious Connect grew up to a team of 4 brilliant coaches and 2 dev/engineers in only 6 months to deliver our programmes to 10-15 schools and help over 200 future apprentices in 2020.

N.B. Covid-19 has and will make it harder for everyone but the French government’s new financial incentives for all the companies recruiting apprentices makes a huge opportunity for growth.
