About Intrepid by VitalSource

Twenty-five years of digital learning experience and 85+ awards have taught us that learning thrives on agility. Intrepid embraces the unexpected, crafting innovative cohort models and digital tools that empower learning by doing, together.

Our platform goes beyond theory. It’s engaging, hands-on experiences with peers, fueling individual growth and organizational transformation. See our innovation journey unfold below, as we continue our relentless pursuit of learning effectiveness.

  1. 1999

    Intrepid Learning Solutions was founded as a research and consulting business focused on the corporate e-learning market. 

  2. 2002-2012

    We launched and rapidly grew a corporate learning managed services business, landing on the Inc. 500 and serving major global clients such as Boeing, Microsoft, Autodesk, United Airlines, and State Street. 

  3. 2012

    We saw a market opportunity to provide enterprise customers with more engaging, collaborative and applied digital learning experiences. This vision led us to start creating the Intrepid platform. 

  4. 2015

    To enhance focus on our collaborative learning platform business, we sold our managed services business to Xerox in 2015.

  5. 2017

    Over the next few years, we grew the business 750% and were acquired by VitalSource Technologies, a distributor of digital content to higher education students and institutions, to expand into corporate learning.
