VenuEdu, an all-in-one web based platform, connects stylists with live education events in one easy to use and convenient location. It's founders, wanted to develop a simple way for fellow stylists of any skill level to locate educational classes and events in a centralized and accessible portal. After months of planning and fine-tuning, VenuEdu launched on July 31, 2017.
Not only does VenuEdu create a place for stylists to access educational opportunities, but it also serves as a means for educators to build their own brand and gain exposure.
“As a hairdresser myself, who still looks for classes and opportunities to hone my hairdressing skills, I wanted to find a way to empower not only stylists, but educators as well,” said Lael Barry, Founder of VenuEdu. “I wanted to create a place where other hairdressers could quickly and effortlessly find classes or other events in the concentrations they were looking for, as well as purchase the reservation. The site is also a platform to enable educators to become independent from the confines of larger brands, giving them the freedom to teach their own material and be their own brand.”
