Bringing the ‘Ed’ to NovoEd
We are thrilled to announce Ed Miller has joined NovoEd as CEO.
Ed is the perfect person to lead NovoEd in its next phase of growth. He’s talented and proven, bringing extensive experience in sales, general management and the education industry. He was a founder, general manager, and several time CEO. And most recently, he spent seven years as a Business Unit President at Blackboard. His demonstrated ability to build and scale organizations around a strong product and team is timely as NovoEd expands into corporate learning and training with customers like Wells Fargo, Fidelity, IDEO and General Electric.
NovoEd is at an exciting inflection point as a company. It partnered with leading business schools such as Stanford, Darden, Berkeley-Haas, and Wharton to deliver powerful education experiences in design thinking, innovation, and leadership — skills people can’t learn by simply watching a video. It is now taking the newest version of their experiential learning platform to companies like Comcast and Wells Fargo where the need for more collaborative corporate training and learning is only growing.
While there are many early leaders disrupting the corporate learning and training space (including fine companies such as Udemy/Udacity and Costanoa portfolio Grovo in micro-learning) NovoEd’s mission is different. They’re taking the best of what modern learners like about social and collaborative apps and bringing it into a learning platform for the highest value training companies need.
We are excited about the opportunities ahead at NovoEd- and think bringing the ‘Ed’ into NovoEd couldn’t have come at a better time. Onward!
