We're thrilled to announce a groundbreaking partnership that marks a new chapter in the world of online learning: altMBA, the visionary virtual leadership academy founded by Seth Godin, has chosen Disco as its platform partner.
This collaboration is not just a fusion of two organizations, but a confluence of shared values and aspirations in transforming social learning and shaping the future of education.
Since its inception in 2015, altMBA has been a trailblazer in virtual learning. Their renowned 31-day online leadership workshop has positively impacted over 6,000 leaders in more than 90 countries, championing the importance of community and collaborative learning. This resonates deeply with our mission at Disco—to revolutionize learning by creating environments where collaboration and social interaction are not just encouraged, but are central to transformative results.
JaLeea Beavers, Director of Student Experiences at altMBA, highlighted the synergy between our organizations: "The best part of the experience has been working with a team whose values align with ours. Everyone at Disco has been incredibly helpful, hands-on, and collaborative." She emphasized the importance of a platform that supports their mission of fostering community and building lasting connections among students.
Furthermore, Beavers noted how Disco's platform facilitates the integration of altMBA’s unique culture compass and community practices, enhancing the overall learning experience. This aligns with our ethos at Disco—to help community-powered learning businesses deliver intuitive, engaging, and impactful learning experiences for people across the globe.
Beavers adds, "Over the years we have run the workshop on many different platforms. Our ultimate goal is to curate an experience for students that fosters community and creates opportunities to build long-lasting connections. We loved the way that Disco approached member onboarding as well as how the platform gave us the ability to easily infuse our culture compass and community practices throughout the workshop. There were also many features readily available to us that we've had to create from scratch in the past on other platforms.”
Candice Faktor, Co-Founder and co-CEO of Disco, shares her excitement: "We built Disco to serve innovative learning communities like altMBA. This partnership is a testament to our commitment to supporting organizations that are reshaping the way we think about education and learning."
The transition of altMBA’s program to our platform is set to broaden its impact and effectiveness. By leveraging Disco’s advanced tools and technology, altMBA can now deliver even more dynamic and interactive learning experiences to its global community.
