Our manifesto

Don't mind the gap. Cross it. The economy has changed. The skills gap widens further every day. When Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic she said, "My flying has been mostly solo, but the preparation for it wasn't."

Like Amelia, you too have an ocean to cross. We need pioneers who are ready to take up the challenge. We are here to prepare you for the journey. Our mission is to help more people cross the skills gap. We partner with your employer to help you find higher pay and higher purpose by upgrading your skills.  

We have the tools to match the challenge. We help you and your organization make dedicated time to learn, pay for your education or training, and find the right program to meet you and your employer’s needs that align with upgraded opportunities. All while working in your current job. No one else is helping individuals learn more so they can earn more like we do.

"Everyone has oceans to fly, if they have the heart to do it. What do dreams know of boundaries?” - Amelia Earhart
