You heard it here first! Yesterday Tech Cocktail posted a story about Learner Nation joining Endeavor Miami Entrepreneurs based on a picture on Facebook. It is confirmed that this is true!

Michael McCord and Michael Laas, co-founders of LearnerNation, were selected as Endeavor Entrepreneurs during Endeavor Global’s 54th International Selection Panel held in New York City. In total, 31 high-impact entrepreneurs representing 21 companies in 15 countries were selected in New York.

LearnerNation, founded in 2012, is a B2B SAAS Cloud Adaptive Learning System that makes both teaching and learning simpler for businesses. The company has grown to over 148,200 professional users across 2,300 organizations including Fortune 500 Companies.

“These past 7 months going through the selection process have been really valuable to us and to the direction of our organization. Endeavor really pushes entrepreneurs to think bigger and we’re really encouraged by the mentor involvement,” says Michael McCord.

In order for an entrepreneur to be selected to the program, they must receive unanimous vote from all 6 panelists on Endeavor’s International Selection Panel (ISP).

“We are excited that LearnerNation will benefit from Endeavor’s support to accelerate their growth”, says Sean Wolfington, who was one of LearnerNation’s panelists, “They represent the emerging tech scene in Miami and share Endeavor’s values and commitment of building entrepreneurship in our community”.

Endeavor Entrepreneurs receive targeted services including mentorship, access to capital, access to markets, as well as access to talent. In addition, they have the ability to tap into the Endeavor Entrepreneur network made up of over 900 High-Impact entrepreneurs from 606 companies representing 20 countries.
