We have a proven, science-based framework on how adults change mindsets, behaviors and learn new skills. Our proprietary content is beautifully and professionally produced to cinematic, Netflix-style quality - engaging the modern workforce. We go deep with analytics and use this to further improve the skill development of each learner on our platform.

Our business model and approach are highly differentiated from the rest of the learning industry, and our amazing Net Promoter Score of +74 versus an industry average of -25 is proof of how we are cracking the code.
