Adrian Binzaru, Co-Founder & CEO at Cademy, and his team are building what they call, an Airbnb for educational courses. Cademy’s goal is to create an easy way for people to search across thousands of local courses, workshops and bootcamps. Typically, if you’re looking for an educational course in your area, you have to comb through various platforms, such as Eventbrite, Craigslist, Facebook groups, etc. Additionally, if you want to teach a course, it can be hard to let the people that are interested in signing up know that it is available.
Adrian used Google Cloud Dataprep by Trifacta to clean and standardize all of the course data he collected from around the web. He was able to build a search engine/marketplace MVP in 1 week for a total cost of $16. Cademy built their MVP in the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, where they are based. They plan to start expanding their marketplace to additional cities in the near future.
