Deskless workers make up 80% of the global workforce yet struggle daily because they cannot access quality vocational training.


Traditional offline training or desktop-based Learning Management System can never be effective for these workers. They are always on the go, cannot commit to a fixed location & schedule, have no computer to watch a lengthy lecture video, and hardly get access to mentorship.


Therefore, half of the deskless workers surveyed by BCG (2022) feel underpaid, unable to access learning opportunites, and unlikely to progress in their career.

Laura Phan

Founder & CEO @Trainizi

"Grew up surrounded by deskless workers in the rural countryside of Vietnam, I witnessed firsthand their unspoken struggles of making a good living. It was right in front of me: my family, my neighbors and the strangers I met on the streets.


Education then came and gave me opportunities to work and travel around the globe. This opened my eyes to how much the world has to offer and how big the gap is between the deskless community in my hometown and the first-world societies. These contrasting experiences have shaped my worldview on how education can be the means to liberate lives.


Without access to quality education, this economic and quality-of-life gap will keep widening. Learning that there are 2.7 billion underserved deskless workers worldwide who need so much help, I turned sympathy into actions."

Our founders are lifelong friends who come from contrasting backgrounds and education paths, yet bond over the same obsession with innovation and impact.

Heath completed his studies in Global Development & International Business in Europe, and has spent his career helping businesses with impact enter new emerging markets successfully.


Nam holds a PhD. from the United States, and has over 15 years of experience at the intersection of academia and industry in the space of machine learning, NLP and supercomputing.

They are rooted in Vietnam yet traveled, lived and worked around the globe, which nurtured their desire to bring global education to underserved workers in Vietnam and Vietnamese workers to the world.

We also work with their employers to help them build a qualified workforce.

While workers struggle to make a good living, companies in labor-intensive and service-driven sectors surprisingly face significant challenges to recruit. The labor shortages, especially for deskless workers, are pervasive in developed countries, such as the United States, United Kingdom, Northern Europe, and Australia, and the numbers don't lie.

This dilemma arises from the training gap for these deskless workers.


Traditional vocational training is location-based, time-based and costly, which doesn't match the learning behavior and living circumstances of the deskless workforce. Deskless workers need to be trained in a new and improved way, leveraging the only thing that remains constant in their lives: the mobile device.


That's how Trainizi started.

We aim to become the world's largest mobile vocational school.

Imagine a world where you don't go to school, but the school goes to you.

Imagine a world where adults find joy in learning again.

Imagine a world where fair work is plentiful and accessible to all.

We want to lead the change as the world's first and largest vocational school without owning any buildings or employing any teachers by 2030.


Our school rests in the learner's pocket, yet opens a gateway for them to endless career possibilities worldwide.

Our people.
