2 side projects centered around learning. What do you think?
Hi, everyone. I have an idea, and I'd like to get some feedback on it. It's based on shared-economy, and it's an Uber/ Airbnb for trainers.
First, companies are in the lookout for people that can deliver knowledge to their employees on different topics. But they want really, really good people. Mostly they get to them through a third-party (like a training agency who contracts trainers), but all the communication is done through this third party, there is little interaction with the trainer.
Second, there are high-performing professionals, who could deliver their knowledge to companies, but have no training experience and no way to market their skills.
My idea is to build a platform where anybody who'd like to have a side-gig and monetize skills outside their current employment status can apply to be a trainer. We'd teach them how to design learning journeys (I have those skills, as I do this as a consultant for some time now) and build a marketplace with their profiles.
Meanwhile, I'd ask companies to just take a look at the platform, and if they see someone who could help them, hire them. Basically, they'd hire people who solved their problems for other companies.
All the communication would be made directly with the trainer, but both he and the companies would sign contracts with my platform. The monetization will be % of the trainers' fee.
What do you think? :)
