We partner with non-profits, the private sector, and governments to expand this free resource to those seeking these entrepreneurship and business skills training and receive impact metrics such as number of users, number of courses taken per user, course satisfaction and course completion rates. We also support partners that leverage HP LIFE as part of a wider employment/job creation effort, such as our partnership with UNIDO on the Mashrou3i program in Tunisia.
