This substantial capital injection projects Morphoses into a new era, where its goal is to redefine how learners acquire essential soft skills. Our platform addresses the urgent demand for soft skills in today’s and tomorrow’s job market.

The employability skills gap, an ongoing challenge in the modern job landscape, has left job seekers ill-equipped with the crucial soft skills that employers demand. This disparity between qualifications and employer expectations has led to employment barriers and an increasing sense of frustration among employers. In today’s evolving landscape, characterized by the advancement of AI, automation, and the tech sector in general, individuals who look to distinguish themselves must prioritize qualities such as empathy, enhanced communication skills, and effective decision-making processes.

Recent reports highlight the evolving job landscape, with 65% of today’s primary school children expected to work in roles that don’t yet exist (World Economic Forum). Additionally, 92% of HR professionals emphasize the importance of soft skills over hard skills, with 89% attributing bad hires to a lack of soft skills (Forbes & Linkedin). In light of these insights, bridging this skills gap is not only essential for individual career growth but also holds immense implications for business success and overall economic prosperity, making it a vital societal imperative.

The founding team comprises Anna Natsvlishvili (CEO)Ilia Tzortzopoulou (COO), and Alexandros Pithamitsis (CPO). Their professional relationship spans over a decade, originating from our shared academic journey at the University of Patras, Department of Computer Engineering, and their prior employment experiences, including stints at Endeavor and Pobuca. Their diverse backgrounds bring together a wealth of complementary skills and extensive experiences.

Morphoses is rooted in the personal journey of CEO, Anna Natsvlishvili. Raised in Nafplio by immigrant parents, Anna experienced firsthand the challenges of childhood, including discrimination, which affects 20% of children worldwide and often leads to mental health issues. As she grew older, Anna recognized a fundamental truth: to succeed in adulthood, individuals must cultivate a diverse skill set from a young age. Skills like empathy, decision-making, critical thinking, and effective communication form the bedrock of personal development.

Our company has earned the trust of leading employers in the EU & SEE Region, who operate in traditional sectors such as Pharmaceuticals, Airlines, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Heavy Industries, and more. This underscores its dedication to providing impactful solutions for medium to large traditional sector companies.

We aim to redefine employee value, revolutionizing family-inclusive workforce education to enhance employer-employee relationships and promote a brighter, sustainable future.

The funds raised will accelerate Morphoses’ expansion across the UK and Europe, enabling more employers to support their employees and their families. This significant step will further validate Morphoses’ product-market fit and enhance our platform to meet the evolving needs of learners and corporate partners.
