Fluency is a learning platform and marketplace that helps young people get into work. We help them unlock their latent digital skills and connect them with businesses who need them.
The company aims to address a common problem for early- and mid-stage businesses: their owners are experts in their fields but not experts in digital marketing even though it is an essential part of every business today. These businesses need help and are willing to pay for it, but are not in a position to hire staff.
Fluency connects these businesses to Fluency graduates - young people aged 18 to 25 with skills in web, social media and digital marketing - to tackle discrete pieces of work that the business is not equipped to handle in-house.
We have just finished incubating at Bethnal Green Ventures and will launch to private beta in November 2013.
