Our mission:

Unlock knowledge in the enterprise.

Our Vision

Our vision is to make professional learning social.

We believe so much of the world’s knowledge is locked inside the experience of professionals, and within the confines of company walls. We want to provide a medium to unlock this knowledge and experience.

We see online communities as the most efficient way to deliver this. We believe the future of learning lies in the curation of content through communities.

Organizations need social learning to attract, engage and develop talent.By making professional learning social, we are creating a parallel model of education that better meets global industry demands.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.


BraveNewTalent clients include Lockheed Martin, CEB, Expedia, and Working For Youth.
