The Verb story

Verb started in 2013 as a simple business plan competition for socially innovative entrepreneurs. These global innovation competitions helped to grow and mentor thousands of entrepreneurs. We realized that companies of all kinds were benefiting from Verb’s skills training and peer learning programs and that the leadership growth was often the biggest value.

Today Verb is a leading people and leadership development platform, which combines mentorship with leadership skills development and peer learning for a whole-person development learning style. Verb encourages action and real behavior change, through its science backed model of the learning loop. We believe learning is just not enough, we need to drive results!

Real, lasting outcomes backed by data.

Users have rated Verb’s content 4.5/5 stars and complete 3x the number of activities on Verb’s platform than the industry standard.


Trusted and loved by Fortune 500 companies around the world.


We may have started small, but Verb now provides people all over the world with the skills they need to succeed, unlocking and cultivating their potential.
