LLR has been investing and helping to create value in professional education and training solutions for more than 20 years, including online solutions and data analytics for healthcare, engineering, construction, public safety and other end markets. We continue to seek partnerships with best-in-class training providers that allows employers to improve organizational productivity, manage workforce compliance or increase employee engagement.

Companies and intermediaries working in this space should contact Pete Schwartz to discuss relevant investment opportunities.

As a company grows, challenges naturally arise and the LLR Value Creation Team has been instrumental in supporting us. Beyond the tactical and strategic help, they provided substantial morale boosting and professional development for each MedBridge team member. The people on the VCT are amazing, talented and, frankly, just  great to work with. Kudos to you and the whole team for building this important asset that helps us grow and have an even bigger impact on the lives of more patients and providers.
