Better Together

A letter from our CEO

A world where everyone has the resources to learn and achieve their fullest potential. That’s our vision. 

To accomplish this, we are pioneering a platform of builder-driven businesses, all united around a shared mission of supercharging productivity and learning for everyone. The simple and powerful belief that we are building around is that we are better together. And together, we are Learneo. 

In just two years, our team has expanded from one business to six. We’ve broadened the categories in which we work and expanded the opportunities for those we serve.

Together, we are building on over a decade of consistent and sustainable growth and profitability. That legacy of operational and financial stewardship is shared among our businesses, forming a strong foundation for long-term success and allowing us to continue investing in our teams, technology, and other values-aligned builders.

In a massive, fragmented, and fast-changing online productivity and learning market, it’s challenging for any individual company to build great products at scale. As a platform of businesses, we are made up of a collection of smaller, decentralized, entrepreneurial teams. We ruthlessly prioritize, go deep in our respective areas of expertise, make bets, and move fast. We look ahead to what’s next with a bias for action, and we optimize for efficiency and impact. Our name, Learneo, and our visual identity reflect our commitment to builders and to learning by doing.

Learneo is a portmanteau of learn and neo. Learning is at the heart of all of our businesses, and neo represents a new, revived form. It's also a nod to the popular fictional character known for reaching their fullest potential by learning while doing.

People’s lives—and their path to developing skills and growth—are more complex, more diverse, and more continuous. Learning is no longer sequential. Learning and doing are happening simultaneously, across shorter time periods and contexts. Learning is our most powerful engine for productivity.

Learneo exists to help people learn and do more, faster, better, and more affordably. We invite you to join us on this journey.
