Vivo and Ânima create training three way partnership
Operator and educational group create digital platform for free courses.
The operator Vivo and Ânima Educação, one of the largest private educational groups in the country, completed the creation of Vivae, an education joint venture.
The start of the operation is scheduled for the second half of this year. In it, the strategy is aimed at free training courses, with a focus on continuing education and employability.
At first, courses will be offered in areas such as technology, management, business and tourism, with current content that adheres to the demand of the job market, through a digital education platform.
The objective, according to the companies, is to leverage the job market and help improve the living conditions of students, also offering the search for vacancies in partner companies.
Vivae has already begun to be professionally formed with the arrival of Alexandre Max, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Lucas Nabeiro, Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

On Vivae’s platform, students will have access to quality content at an affordable price, in addition to being able to manage their learning in a personalized way at any time during their training”, explains Max.
