CEO Gabriel Smith
TRINOCITY, a Nashville startup that provides an online marketplace for exchange and monetization of peer-to-peer training content, reported today it has raised nearly $1.2MM.
CEO Gabriel Smith and President Eric Busby, the company's co-founders, were listed in association with today's SEC filing for Trinocity. They have not yet responded to a query left with their staff.
VNC research indicates Smith was previously CEO of Legacy Instructional Media here in town. Busby has previously served in lead Tech roles with Quickstart Technologies, Saddleback and TCM, and earned a degree in educational leadership.
Trinocity is an e-learning, crowdsourcing and e-commerce play. The business has registered these dba's in Tennessee: CME Advisory, CLE Advisory, CPE Advisory and The CE Advisory, according to state records online.
Online, the company says of its business, "Nearly all certified professionals are forced by their licensing requirements to endure Continuing Education every year. It is a dreadful experience. Most of what is offered is poor in quality and almost universally boring. Trinocity has developed a peer-review software platform that promotes instructional meritocracy in mandated Continuing Education, allowing professional associations to better serve their membership while monetizing the largely undisturbed $5 Billion Continuing Professional Education (CPE) market."
