Four Industry Experts Launch New Tech Learning Company

Denver, CO (USA), April 2024 - Four long-time tech learning executives are excited to announce the launch of a new custom tech learning organization. The four co-founders have worked at, or with, all major tech learning organizations in the United States, and possess a combined 70+ years of tech learning expertise.

Kelby Zorgdrager, former CEO of DevelopIntelligence and EVP at Pluralsight; Cole Frock, formerly with SkillSoft; Jeret Jenkins, formerly with Axcel Learning; and Bob Clary, formerly with DevelopIntelligence, have united to form bILTUp.

bILTup helps drive transformational change:

  • bILTadvisory - CLO offering "in a box"
  • simplybILT - Instructor-led programs that are plug and play and  lightly tailored
  • custombILT - fully managed, highly customized blended instructor-led upskilling programs
  • bILTu - strategic customized reskilling transformations
  • bILT+ - professional services suite augmenting the needs of L&D teams

bILTup features a heavily vetted, industry-proven instructor bench. Highlights include 155 instructors (and growing), offering up to 310 instructor-led training (ILT) days of delivery capacity per month.

The bILTup team focuses on the following technology areas: AI/GenAI, Machine Learning, Data Science, Data Engineering, DevOps, Cloud, Front-End, Back-End, Full Stack Development, Cybersecurity, ITIL, Agile, and Mobile.

"Once my tenure at Pluralsight came to an end, I decided to take some time off, during which I began connecting with some of the biggest tech L&D leaders in the U.S.," CEO Kelby Zorgdrager explains.

"To my shock, I discovered that those leaders were still struggling to find a learning partner who could deliver true, custom, blended-learning solutions that drive transformational outcomes and lead to company growth. Coupled with the profound impact of AI on the ever-changing tech landscape, I decided to launch a boutique learning organization to solve these needs."

Zorgdrager adds, "And I brought in the best tech L&D-focused team members in the country."
