San Francisco — January 29, 2021 — Learn To Win raised $4M in seed funding to bring its mobile-first, active learning platform to high-performance teams. Norwest Venture Partners led the round with participation from Pear VC and the 20|20 Fund. Funding will be used to broaden product awareness, expand platform capabilities, and extend into new industry categories, starting with first responders and healthcare companies. From locker rooms to Air Force bases, and hospitals to fire departments, whiteboards, videos and binders have long dominated training for some of the most intense learning with the highest stakes. Learn to Win makes it simple to transform dense manuals, long videos and other classroom-oriented training materials into quick and easy-to-learn lessons – which leave trainers and those on the job confident that everyone is prepared for duty. Stanford GSB graduates Andrew Powell (CEO) and Sasha Seymore (COO) lead a team of former professional athletes, veterans, and education experts. “As a Division I college basketball player and U.S. Naval Reserve officer, I saw an opportunity to reimagine training geared towards professionals whose work takes place in the field rather than behind a screen. With Learn to Win, we’ve created active methods for today’s digital-first learner. Our approach empowers students and instructors alike, streamlining the training process so that team members can learn faster, smarter, and better,” says Seymore.
Learn to Win’s platform offers:
- Agile lessons: Interactive, three- to five-minute video and photo-driven lessons are available on mobile for flexible, user-friendly learning.
- Instructor Input: Intuitive web templates empower instructors to design interactive lessons as easily as creating a PowerPoint.
- Fast Feedback: Dynamic analytics dashboards provide crucial insight into learners’ performance, allowing instructors to pivot or double-down as needed to ensure preparedness.

Already a proven resource for athletic teams, businesses, and the U.S. Department of Defense, Learn to Win’s platform results in stronger and more effective teams through targeted sessions, well-designed lesson plans, and rapid feedback.
