Woz U offers access to technology companies interested in utilizing the equipment and resources provided to recruit and train their employees.
Platforms are also available for K-12 students in collaboration with districts, Woz U wants to give individual instruction to students and include those who potentially make startups into their own programs.
It does not say how much it would cost to attend the Woz U lecture, however, this platform is already available in mobile apps.

“Our goal is to educate and train people in digital skills that can be employed without putting them into the burden of many years,” explains Wozniak.
