How we started
Our journey began with recognizing a fundamental truth: traditional LMS and eLearning platforms are ill-equipped to solve the unique challenges faced by technical teams at enterprise-level companies. We realized that in order to unlock a technical team’s full potential, we needed to build a new solution that fundamentally reimagined how companies approach technical learning and development – a new approach that places the power of live events at its center. PlusPlus was created to enable technical program managers to meet those challenges quickly and with ease.
Where we are
What began as a bespoke solution for technical teams quickly evolved into something far greater than a new LMS: PlusPlus emerged as a comprehensive solution that empowers all types of program managers – including TPM, L&D, HR, ERGs, and everyone in between – to efficiently execute even the most complex programs at scale. From new employee onboarding to peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, ongoing employee development, and nurturing company culture, PlusPlus has matured into a holistic team enablement solution trusted by enterprise companies like Shopify, Netflix, Airbnb, and Salesforce.
As we continue to evolve, our mission remains clear: empowering program managers to facilitate knowledge sharing and build human connections at scale. By staying at the forefront of industry developments and maintaining personal relationships with our clients, we are committed to delivering innovative solutions that cater to the ever-changing needs of tech-forward companies.
Our Operating Values
Delivering enablement; from our team to yours.
“In the mind of an expert, little is possible. In the mind of a beginner, everything is possible.”
With a passion for mastery, we encourage each other to learn, adapt, and stay on the cutting edge. Shoshin is about humility.
“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena… because there is no effort without error and shortcoming.”
Be in the arena. Fail Fast and Fail Forward. We value courage, effort, and dedication over avoidance of failure.
“If You Want to Go Fast, Go Alone. If You Want to Go Far, Go Together.”
We believe in creating an environment of trust that allows for unbiased observation, selfless sharing, and respectful acknowledgment.
Pioneering Team Enablement
Brothers Marko & Aleksander Gargenta co-founded their first education technology company, Marakana, in 2001, which they later sold to Twitter in 2013. From within Twitter, Merakana expanded and evolved into what eventually became Twitter University, a highly-effective new methodology and tool set to onboard and develop engineers and technical teams. Realizing that the solution they created had the potential far beyond Twitter, they later co-founded PlusPlus in 2016 with the goal of creating the world’s most powerful team enablement platform.
Today, PlusPlus powers team enablement at dozens of enterprise companies including HubSpot, Slack, LinkedIn, and Roblox.
PlusPlus is backed by the venture capital firms behind Airtable, BetterUp, Carta, Clubhouse, Intercom, and many others.
