WORK IS YOUR CLASSROOM.
THE PROBLEMS ARE YOUR CURRICULUM.

At Strive, we believe that every workplace has a classroom waiting to break free (with a little help).  Right now, we help engineers and engineering managers develop the leadership skills they need to build awesome teams.

WORKING AT STRIVE
BUILD SOMETHING SPECIAL WITH EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE

Strive believes every workplace has a classroom waiting to break free (with a little help).  We also believe that employees quit managers, not companies.  We're building a set of tools to help current and aspiring managers get better at their job, on the job, without the other people on their team paying the price for their mistakes. 

 

Strive is working with many great early customers and raised a $3.8MM seed round from top investors to build the team and scale impact.
