We train kids of between ages 6-17, we mentor them and expose them to emerging markets. As we all know we live in the time of constant change, especially in terms of technology.

Do you pay them?

Yes of course we pay per workload, we do pay via parents account so that they can monitor what their children do with the money.

How do you train them?

We train 10% physical 90%virtually globally. Only some parts of the trainings are physical and we do virtual graduation, and virtual seminars for kids.
