Posted on June 16, 2022 at 11:37 AM by Ashley Hunt
Over the last few decades, technology has revolutionized the way we live our daily lives. Advanced technology has put resources constantly at our fingertips, from faster, smaller mobile phones to smart devices like watches. As we continue to turn to technology solutions for just about everything, innovative startups leverage technology to build educational tools that can help better our quality of life.
Much like technology, education has become a cornerstone of the average American’s life. Whether it be four-year or community colleges, trade schools, or other professional certificates and licenses, continuing education is crucial to nearly every profession. Traditionally, students have relied on massive binders or notecards for on-the-go studying, but with our constant access to smartphones, we can empower students to study anywhere at any time.
HLT has created digital tools that allow students to study for the most important courses and exams of their lives, all from the phones in their pockets. HLT’s bite-sized, interactive content is perfect for busy learners.
Where HLT stands out from competitors is the access provided for specific courses and classes – with tailored products – from nursing classes, clinicals, or boards and guides for MCAT, PCAT, or dental admission tests, to courses for military recruits looking to land choice placements and professional certifications for CPAs, real estate, and more.
“At Next Level Ventures, we are looking for companies that understand adapting needs of consumers today, and HLT has exemplified that with their early prediction of technology’s role in education – beyond traditional college courses to professional certifications and other continuing education needs,” said Craig Ibsen, Managing Partner at Next Level Ventures. “We are seeing technology overlap in just about every industry, and it’s crucial to be ahead of the curve in finding opportunities to utilize technology to improve quality of life.”
Today, HLT has been downloaded more than 10 million times, and has nearly 500 thousand monthly active users.
