SkillPop is a new NC-based startup seeking to make in-person learning fresh and accessible. In an age where learning is trending online, SkillPop curates in-person classes where trying a new skill is social and engaging. “We don’t think you should have to spend huge amounts of time or money just to try something new or build your skills, so we make it simpler,” says founder Haley Bohon.
SkillPop hosts classes on a variety of topics from Handlettering to How to Launch Your Business which range from $20-35/class. Courses are held pop-up style in unique venues around the community and are taught by local experts looking to share their skills. Each class is bite-sized and focused so that you leave with the tools and knowledge to start pursuing your passion.
There are several ways to get involved:
