ITProTV, the home of binge-worthy learning™ for IT professionals and the fastest growing SaaS tech-ed online learning platform, was awarded the $100,000 Accelerating Innovation Grand Prize Award from Space Florida at the 2018 Florida Venture Capital Conference in Fort Lauderdale.
"To be recognized among such a stellar group of companies is an honor for ITProTV," Tim Broom, CEO of ITProTV, said. "It's a reflection of the work our team is doing to achieve our growth and revenue goals as we empower the world through engaging learning."
ITProTV was selected from the 17 companies who presented at the two-day event, held at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Spa. The presenting companies were selected from a statewide pool of more than 100 applicants by a committee of active Florida venture capitalists and other investors.
A panel of judges reviewed each company's presentation and supporting materials. Space Florida provided the Accelerating Innovation prize money. To date, Space Florida supported capital accelerators have attracted more than $134 million in funding and investments.
"We congratulate ITProTV, thank Space Florida for their strong support, and look forward to continuing to promoting Florida-grown companies in future events," said Kevin Burgoyne, President and CEO of the Florida Venture Forum, the host of the conference and Florida's largest statewide support organization for investors and entrepreneurs.
After just four years in business, ITProTV is experiencing triple digit growth as the company sets records for revenues, new customers, and new enterprise partnerships for its primary offering of IT training. ITProTV plans to double both membership and revenue in the next year and launch four new subscription options for developers, technology business managers, office administrators, and creative professionals. ITProTV is disrupting the eLearning market with an affordable, engaging alternative to giants such as LinkedIn Learning, CBT Nuggets and Pluralsight.
