There are two big problems with online-only courses. One - they’re not customized by role and company. And two - there’s little if any guidance from an expert.
The result? Tiny completion rates, limited application to existing work, and little visibility on how the course affected actual productivity in a job.
Enki is different. The platform first identifies how each employee’s workflows can be streamlined or improved with better use of productivity tools. Learners are then matched with a mentor in our expert network, who helps them complete exercises and projects which are fully customized for them and their use cases.
The Enki platform has other features (like cohort-based learning, Slack and calendar integrations) that online courses don’t have, but the customization and mentor-guided approach are the biggest reasons why our learner engagement is over 90%. To top it off, the company gets visibility on the benefits and return on investment, driven by the efficiencies generated from the newly-acquired skills.
Enki makes the biggest difference to the workflow of operations, product, marketing and sales professionals at companies with over 50 employees.
Enki’s partners that have seen the most objective value are fintech, marketplace and B2B companies who either use a business intelligence tool (like Tableau or Looker), or simply collect a lot of data on their customers.
After every module (typically on a monthly basis) we share a report with a cost-benefit analysis for every learner. These benefits are based on an estimate of time and cost savings resulting from the learner’s new workflow, as well as potential impact.
The platform was developed with busy professionals in mind. Active learners typically spend 2 hours per week engaging with their mentor and the exercises. Each module within our Tracks is 4 weeks long.
Enki mentors are talented and experienced professionals who work full-time at prominent companies, such as Airbnb, Stripe, Hyperscience, and Amazon. They’ve been carefully vetted by Enki not just for technical application, but also quality of coaching.
Active Enki mentors spend 2-4 hours mentoring and guiding Enki learners every week. This time is split in three parts: 1) reviewing and giving feedback on learners’ exercise submissions, 2) discussing any blockers or issues with them, and 3) helping them apply their new skills in line with their use cases.
Prior to learners starting each module within a Track, their “end goal” is identified by their mentor, with input from relevant stakeholders. The mentor then uses our platform to set up a customized learning path for each learner.
For our larger company partners, we customize all the content and exercises in line with their datasets and use cases. Get in touch to learn more!
Enki's mentor marketplace model provides consultancy-grade training, but at a fraction of the cost. We charge $300 / learner that is fully active in any given month.
We work with companies on a month-by-month basis, with a minimum of $5k / month (for 3 months) for the fully custom content experience.
There can be cost efficiencies with scale, and also if a partner company provides any of its own employees to replace our mentors for mentoring its team.
That’s great — because what Enki can do for your team now is scale that data analyst resource in a cost-effective way.
There are two big problems with relying solely on a data team for all the data requests the company needs. One - it doesn’t scale. Either it becomes prohibitively expensive as the team grows, or a big bottleneck is created which impacts speed and quality of decision making. Two - there is often a loss in translation between the business and data team.
This is why many business intelligence tools like Tableau and Looker have become popular with companies over the last few years. But! These tools are not easy to get started with or to use to their full potential for employees. Enki can help with that in an efficient and cost-effective way.
That's exactly when Enki can help most! Think of us as an internal academy - but on demand and software-enabled. So we can provide that training resource for you: instantly, without any heavy lifting from your side, and leveraging a large network of experts.
And if there seems to be no time to learn for your employees — keep in mind that whether or not they are “formally” learning, they are continuously learning “informally” themselves - one way or another -on the job. Every day they are discussing with colleagues how to prioritize, thinking of ways of using data and feedback to make improvements, looking at reports and data to serve customers better, spending time with your tools to understand the business better. Enki can make all those processes far more efficient and effective than they are today.
The price of inaction takes the form of bad decisions, wasted time and missed opportunities. It’s far too high not to think about how to formalize and structure this learning process.
First, we have Tracks that don’t involve touching a company’s more technical tools - like Data 101 and Excel / Sheets. Many employees often start with Enki there.
Second, many of our partners are surprised how much our SQL and BI tool Camps can generate increases in efficiency and improvement in decision making overall even if their tables are messy or inaccessible.
Finally, Enki can help make your data infrastructure better and more accessible! Our custom content modules can directly address the problem of business employees having difficulty in navigating and understanding their company’s tables and schema.
Congratulations — your company is probably ahead of the curve! Now Enki can help you streamline and scale your processes.
Setting up and managing a streamlined training process is difficult, and if done properly with the right follow ups with every learner, takes a lot of time.
For companies who have already have any data training internally, we usually adopt a “divide and conquer” approach. We figure out together how our software, content, streamlined processes and data expert network can complement and scale the efforts of your employees who are already spending time doing any training manually.

At the end of each module, a learner report is generated for relevant stakeholders. Learners can then continue with another module along the same Track, or switch Tracks to start learning a new tool or topic.
