BOSTON, Sept. 20, 2023 ~ Thought Industries, the leading external enterprise learning platform for customer, partner and professional training, is celebrating its 10th anniversary and a new growth milestone. The company has surpassed 21 million active learners using its technology.

Founded in 2013 in a garage in Boston, Thought Industries has stayed true to its vision of helping its clients increase revenue, retain customers, and create truly exceptional learning experiences. CEO and Cofounder Barry Kelly said "We knew learning experiences could offer so much more, and it's been a tremendous honor working with so many incredible customers, partners, and team members over the years. The growth we've seen, and perhaps more important, the opportunity ahead, is an incredible validation of our original vision for the product."

The company was named the #1 Global Learning System by Craig Weiss and recently took home five Brandon Hall 2023 Group Excellence Awards in External Training categories. Thought Industries achieved record revenue and profitability in the first half of 2023 due to enterprise demand from new customers including ATD, Fidelity Digital Learning, and Project Lead the Way as well as renewals from current customers including Miro, The Linux Foundation, and Ingram Micro.
