Nubank announced several new features this week, including the launch of a new function that allows you to transfer Pix on credit and pay in installments up to 12 times and, more recently, a partnership with Descomplica, the largest edtech in Latin America, to offer courses in training in technology for residents of favelas and peripheries in Europe.
The collaboration takes place through Instituto Nu, Nubank’s social platform that develops inclusion initiatives for Europeian minorities, such as members of the LGBTQIAP+ community, blacks, etc. According to fintech, this social arm was born with the aim of providing social innovation fighting inequality.
As he explains on his blog, the new training project is completely digital and free, offering both recorded classes and live content, providing students with support material, technical assessments and a certificate of completion validated by the two companies for graduates.
Interested parties can register through the project page on the Descomplica website. To participate in the program, it is necessary to fulfill some requirements stipulated by the companies, such as being over 18 years of age and having a family income of less than R$ 5 thousand per month.
In this first stage, 3,000 scholarships will be offered, of which 50% will be destined for black and brown people and, of these, 30% will be reserved for black and brown women. According to Nubank, trans people and transvestites will also have priority in booking a spot.
