Pheron is a Greek company that was founded late 2008 and is based in Thessaloniki. Our core product is Schoox, published on www.schoox.com, which is a Social Academy for Self-Learners. Schoox is the only online learning platform that combines two worlds, the consumer world for individual learners and instructors and the corporate world for corporations, organizations and training companies.
In 2012 we founded Schoox, Inc. to develop the US market. Schoox Inc. is a Delaware company based in Austin, TX which is an affiliate of Pheron named after our main product Schoox. Pheron is developing the product Schoox and is responsible for commercializing Schoox in the European market.
Schoox is our pride and we became one of the very limited Greek-origin startups to raise investment money and close successfully a series A round from world class leading investors.
Innovation is one of our strengths and we are constantly come up with new ideas. Our most recent idea is a self-certification center, iUniversity (published on www.iUniversity.org), where people can certify their knowledge in a variety of topics. It doesn’t matter where or how you have acquired your knowledge. It could be at University, at work or at Schoox! You should have the freedom to acquire your knowledge in any way and be able to certify your level of understanding separately.
