Newsletter: Focus to B2B Corporate English and Upskilling
In December 2019, Lana Learn refined focus to business to business (B2B) customers. While in Vietnam, we discovered our team's strong comparative advantage in B2B networks from previous international work. With a spike in demand for specialized English workplace skills for U.S. global companies, we closed our first B2B company shortly thereafter in December 2019, second one in January 2019, and kicked off programs in February 2020.
