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, the Verb platform combines mentorship with leadership skills development with peer learning for a whole person development learning style. 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.
