About BigSpring

BigSpring is solving a Top 3 global challenge - Reskilling. By 2030, most of today’s jobs will require upskilling, many jobs will disappear, and more new ones will emerge that don’t exist today, collectively impacting billions of people.
Our mobile learning platform equips people with the lifelong learning they need to be gainfully employed, and enables employers to measure ROI from learning to establish it as a core business driver - not a discretionary expense.
BigSpring allows our learners the same human-centered, technology-aided experience they enjoy when they navigate to a restaurant, track daily fitness, or browse recommended videos on their smartphones. Learners can map their employment goals to market needs, create skill portfolios that showcase proficiency, engage in learning communities composed of peers and coaches, and measure employability in real-time.
Uber, United Technologies, Tata, OYO and others have made BigSpring their learning platform of choice for over 500,000 learners across Asia Pacific, Africa and the Americas.
