Knod, a Salt Lake City, UT-based provider of an online experience-based learning program, raised $6.2m in funding.
Backers included Epic Ventures and Impact Investment Leaders.
The company intends to use the funds to expand globally.
Led by Graham Doxey, founder and CEO, Knod has launched its online experience-based employment and learning program in the U.S. for its summer cohort of classes, allowing students to build a professional portfolio with real projects completed for real companies while earning a bachelor’s degree in general business or in business management.
The company collaborates with employers to give students the opportunity to work on real projects for a more comprehensive and relevant learning experience that integrates real-world applications. By the end of the program, students will have built a professional portfolio qualifying them for positions requiring about two years worth of work experience, positioning them to be hire-ready when they make the transition to their first job.
