In 2012, co-founders David Blake and Eric Sharp started Degreed with the mission to 'Jailbreak the Degree.' Inspired by JFK's Rice University speech, they set out to take on a big, audacious goal–not because it is easy, but because it is hard. Since then, we've grown to millions of users worldwide who believe there is no single path to expertise.
Degreed exists to discover, empower, and recognize the next generation of the world’s expertise. The smartest, brightest, and most bold, the tenacious, willing, the unsung heroes, self-taught, the scrappy, driven, the passionate, daring, the unafraid. Experts.
There is no single path to expertise. And our success in solving our unique problems depends not upon uniformity, but on our diversity, because our differences and uniqueness make us powerful. Everyone deserves recognition for their expertise, no matter how they got there.
