Freeformers, a London-based startup, offers training and coaching to help job seekers “increase their chances of being employable, successful and productive in a digital world.”
The £1.2 million ($1.7 million) investment was made by impact investment firm Impact Ventures UK. Freeformers partners with large companies like Barclays and Tesco, a supermarket chain. It offers free training to youth and people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Freeformers recently partnered with Facebook for its “Community Boost EU” program, which will teach digital skills to 300,000 people in six European countries.
