Braidio Emerges From Stealth Mode, Launches Cloud-Based Platform for $135 Billion Talent Development Market*

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Braidio, a cloud-based learning and talent development platform, today announced its exit from stealth mode with plans to announce new enterprise customers in the coming weeks.

Funded by top-tier angel investors including Osborne Partners and Dick Spalding of Kearney Venture Partners, Braidio is led by seasoned Silicon Valley veterans. Founder and CEO, Iain Scholnick, is a veteran of the Internet, wireless and security vertical industries with 20 years of technical, business operations and start-up experience. His background includes leadership roles at LicenseStream, ERUCES and Livemind. The co-founder Rafael Solis also serves as CMO and SVP, Product. He has held leadership roles at LicenseStream, MVNO Amp'd, Napster, and Walt Disney.

The team is also joined by Brian Sorge, VP Client Solutions who oversees the development and delivery of client solutions for Braidio and brings more than 25 years of corporate, non-profit and academic experience to his current role from Capital H Group, Marakon Consulting, the Kaleidoscope Group, and the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.

"Today's talent development and HR departments are experiencing a fundamental shift in how employers expect them to attract, retain, train and engage with their employees," said Iain Scholnick, founder and CEO, Braidio. "These departments have not kept up, resulting in disengaged employees who despise the legacy systems they are using today. Not to mention the drain on their IT departments who manage these systems. Meanwhile, workloads continue to rise which makes employees dread having to make time in their day to attend instructor led training or take dated online modules."

Braidio's cloud-based collaborative learning platform focuses on three basic human activities --learning, networking and collaboration -- to establish an employee-driven learning economy within companies. This content delivery approach enables employees to organically integrate learning into their daily workflow while allowing the employer to build and monitor learning metrics with the ultimate goal of sustained learning.
