What we're doing

Our mission is to solve the up-skilling problem by scaling effective, 1:1 coaching for professionals. In doing so, we’ll help them and their companies fulfill their potential.

The Enki story

Enki was founded by Kirill Makharinsky after he saw the impact of hard skills coaching at the hotel booking company he co-founded previously. It was a big contributor to scaling team efficiency and performance as the company grew from 200 to 2,000 employees, and from $5m to over $150m ARR, while becoming profitable.

1:1 coaching programs for employees are enjoyed by professionals only at a few elite companies - like Google, Amazon and Airbnb. They are incredibly impactful, but very difficult and expensive to start and run.

Enki democratizes effective, 1:1 coaching for all employees and companies - with the help of AI, software, a network of experts and optimized processes iterated on over several years.

Now everyone can get the benefits of personalized coaching - with a focus on using cutting edge tools that make work more productive, effective and enjoyable.
