Crehana Aims to Ease Talent Crisis with Affordable Learning

Launched in 2015, a Peruvian startup called Crehana is taking aim at the regional talent crisis by offering cheap and free online courses for aspiring digital workers.

The company already has over 150,000 users from more than 25 countries and offers affordable courses for designers, animators, and illustrators, among others, who want to work in the fast-moving artistic and digital world, according to its founder, Diego Olcese Diaz (pictured).

“We realized that people needed affordable training and be able to access courses from anywhere that has internet,” he told Peruvian daily La Republica in an interview.
