BeNative, a South Korean start-up that provides e-learning services, has said it is set to enter India to provide business communication skills, in English and Chinese.
Equipped with a digital initiative to up-skill youth in business communication, BeNative is in touch with a number of innovative Indian institutes and universities to teach students understand business/technical English so that they can more freely express themselves in the global markets, the company said.
“Any student, if given the right kind of inspiration, learning path and sufficient exposure to the opportunities available, will certainly be able to realise his/her potential. Our mission is to provide such inspiration, learning and exposure to millions of students by closing the gap between their skills and industry needs,” Alan Moonsoo Kim, Chief Executive Officer, BeNative, said.
