Not because it is easy...

Our Mission

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 over 3 million users worldwide who believe there is no single path to expertise.
