Denis Smetnev, co-founder of the Skyeng English school, resigned from the company’s operational leadership. There he served as commercial director and was responsible for the international development of the service.
A Skyeng representative told RB.RU that Smetnev remained a shareholder in the school, but would focus on developing the uForce marketing agency.
uForce launched in 2020 as a division of Skyeng. A year later, Denis Smetnev and Roman Pertsovsky withdrew the project and the Skyeng team.
Denis Smetnev invested approximately $100,000 of his own money in uForce. Now the company’s revenue is 4 million rubles a month and it plans to reach 10 million rubles a month by 2024.
Now the project cooperates with more than 100 companies, including Skipp, Mind&Machine, iFarm, Novakid.
