VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Nov. 4, 2015 - PRLog -- VANCOUVER, BC — October 29, 2015 Connect2Classes (C2C), lifelong learning marketplace is pleased to welcome Rick and Vivian Pura as Advisors.  As co-founders of Victoria based Abebooks, Rick and Vivian created and built the largest single book-marketing entity in the world.

“Abebooks is a worldwide leader in selling rare and hard to find books, but most important to us, Rick and Vivian were pioneers in building a scalable, world class marketplace”, said Dallas Jasper, CEO of Connect2Classes. “We are very excited to have their guidance as we embark on the same journey in the educational space.”

"Abebooks was built to solve the challenges of a fragmented marketplace just as C2C is facing today," said Rick, adding "We built it from the ground up, technically, logistically, organizationally to solve those problems, and we are thrilled to help C2C do just that in the learning marketplace today, essentially by doing it again, knowing what we know now. As people who love to take classes, we are excited to be working with an organization who is making it easier to see the variety of classes available in a local area along with the specifics such as price, schedule and even reviews.”

"Booksellers had limited means to make their unique inventories available to people looking for rare books; creating the perfect opportunity for us,"said Vivian Pura.  “Abebooks connected the booksellers and buyers in a way that was beneficial to all.  Connect2Classes is in a very similar place with providers being a diverse collection of schools, businesses, non-profits churches, rec centers and individuals.  We see this as a huge opportunity for Connect2Classes and are very pleased to join the Connect2Classes advisory board.”
