Inspiration & Vision

Brainshark was founded in 1999 with one vision: to transform the way companies create and share content.

Initially, Brainshark began by addressing a pressing need in the corporate training industry. Organizations were spending months of time and tens of thousands of dollars in computer-based course development. Brainshark founder Joe Gustafson knew he could provide a better way, by allowing organizations to empower their subject matter experts to create eLearning content within minutes... at a fraction of the previous cost.

From this vision, the Brainshark platform was born, and soon encountered a groundswell of demand from other business areas – including marketing, HR, and most notably, SALES. Over time, business professionals everywhere began using Brainshark to create and share content that audiences could view anytime, anywhere and from any device.  

History & Evolution

Over the years, Brainshark has developed and launched a comprehensive product portfolio for content authoring, formal training, sales coaching and more.

Today, these capabilities form the core of our sales readiiness platform, comprised of comprehensive solutions that help organizations drive sales productivity both in and out of Salesforce.

We complement our solutions with professional services that help ensure our customers get the maximum value from their Brainshark investment, and remain dedicated to providing superior customer experiences and support.

Since its inception, Brainshark has invested hundreds of person-years toward developing best-in-class solutions, plus millions of dollars in our secure, reliable and scalable cloud computing infrastructure for sales enablement.
