Our Mission
Headquartered out of Denver, CO, we’re a small but mighty team on a mission to be the best and easiest way to learn at work.
We imagine a world where learning happens in the flow of work. Where employees maximize the minutes of their lives. Where knowledge is contextual, personalized and instantly accessible. Where learning at work is as easy and joyful as it is in our personal lives. This is the future we’re building at Spekit.
Our Product
Say goodbye to distracted zoom training sessions and lengthy LMS courses your teams will forget. Spekit is the leading just-in-time enablement platform that meets your reps when and where they need it, in the tools they use every day.
Spekit takes all of your training & enablement - for applications, processes, sales playbooks, SOPs and more and embeds that training directly in your employees’ tools & workflows. Think of Spekit as your employee’s digital sidekick that delivers real-time, personalized enablement in their flow of work™. Our unified enablement platform prioritizes three pillars: content, user experience, and flexibility. We focus on delivering the right answer, at the right time – all within a streamlined and intuitive interface. No more information overload, no more hunting for answers. That's Simple, yet Spektacular.
With over $60M in VC funding from Bonfire Ventures, Matchstick Ventures, The Foundry Group, Renegade Partners, The Operator Collective and other top VCs, thousands of employees from scaling startups to Fortune 400 organizations leverage Spekit to onboard new hires, facilitate change management and drive adoption of their tools and applications.
