Cognota (formerly Synapse) is the first and only operations platform for corporate Learning and Development teams. Our award-winning software streamlines L&D processes to get better visibility into the training needs across the business while consolidating disparate tools and providing real-time operational insights.
Our team was first introduced to the founder of Cognota, Ryan Austin, through a warm introduction from one of our portfolio CEOs, Nick Chepesiuk, from OnCall. Ryan had heard great things about our team from Nick after working together at the DMZ accelerator last year and asked to be introduced to us. After meeting Ryan, we were extremely impressed with the sophistication and hustle he demonstrated in building his business. Ryan’s tenacity and determination to succeed at all costs was something we knew we had to invest in.
