About Myanmar Youth Empowerment Opportunities (MYEO)
Myanmar Youth Empowerment Opportunities (MYEO) is a social impact-driven edtech. Our mission is to equip all of Myanmar’s new graduates with the skills to be valuable members of the workforce and community.
Youths in Myanmar are in a vulnerable employment situation, either unemployed or underemployed. At the same time, organizations in Myanmar urge more qualified employees, particularly for jobs in the new economy.
Despite the challenges in work conditions for youth and low skilled workforce, Myanmar presents an encouraging opportunity on the adoption of mobile technology: +20 million people in the country use Facebook or Messenger. To seize that opportunity, MYEO has created a mobile-based online solution that nurtures youth employability and paves the way to build a high-skilled workforce for organizations in Myanmar.
MYEO has a team of +30 people, with experience in technology, education, marketing and data analysis. Since 2014, the startup has been impacting the lives of thousands of youths in Myanmar, including +12,000 youths trained exclusively online, +50,000 youths using MYEO's learning chatbots and +130,000 youths engaging with MYEO's Facebook community.
