elev8, the global academy for digital and technology leaders, has recently celebrated the first anniversary of its flagship academy in Costa Rica. Since opening its doors a year ago, elev8 has provided training programs to many professionals seeking to upskill and reskill in new and advancing technologies.
elev8, part of YNV Group, offers programs in advanced digital technologies such as cybersecurity, blockchain, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, 5G, and digital transformation. It also offers bespoke training programs for businesses and government institutions, designed in partnership and tailored to the organization's specific needs and objectives.
Through a global network of leading professors and a learning methodology based on innovation and project development, elev8 seeks to contribute to emerging markets' growth and position them as technology hubs. This first successful year of operations benefits the economic development of Costa Rica by helping to grow a highly skilled talent pool, a key factor in driving foreign direct investment in the country.
Amid the complicated situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, elev8 continues to execute an ambitious growth strategy. This November, the company will formally launch its second academy, located in Nigeria, another emerging region that is rapidly becoming Africa's leading technology center. The company is also expected to open two new operations in the Middle East and Asia in 2021.
"All industries are adapting to an increasingly digital ‘new normal’, and we know that today more than ever, we can contribute to understanding this era of change. Our mission is to help companies and professionals succeed and reap the competitive benefits of technology. Their success is our success," said María Balbás, Global Head of elev8.
