When GenM started just over two years ago, it was a small team on a big mission – to accelerate human potential and make the barrier to entry for starting a new career as low as an internet connection. We knew that the traditional education system was failing millions of people worldwide and that there had to be a better way to prepare people for today’s job market.
What started as 4 employees in a small Ottawa office has grown to more than 40 employees across the globe, building a platform that allows people to get the skills they need to launch their career the best way we know-how – from the professionals currently working in that field.
The path to get where we are wasn’t easy, and we still have a long way to go. However, thanks to our team and the thousands of people using the platform, we have been able to create moments we never thought possible. A single mom who is now able to spend more time with her daughter after finding a remote career in marketing. An entrepreneur who was able to lift themselves from poverty and build a successful business thanks to the help of their mentor. A new-grad who was able to realize their dream of traveling the world while still working in the field they love. These are the stories that keep us going even when things get tough. These are the stories that encourage us to be better every day.
Without change, you’re bound to fail. Getting GenM to where it is today came with its fair share of missteps and while the idea started to serve a generation we felt was being left behind by traditional education, we now see that it’s more than just Millennials who need something like this. From the young GenZ member who wants to learn marketing and get a head start on their career, to the struggling veteran who’s trying to find a new path after coming home – we now recognize that our platform serves more than just the people who inspired it. Because of this, we feel it’s time to leave behind the GenM name and focus on the future. That future is – Acadium.
But what does a name change really mean for us moving forward? Apart from aligning our brand to be more inclusive of the diverse range of people who use it, it also means that we get the opportunity to focus on improving some aspects of our platform that we feel didn’t quite meet the level of quality we aim to provide to our members. So what can you expect from Acadium moving forward?
1. Improved vetting
2. Streamlined matching
3. More productivity tools
4. Proactive customer support
It’s difficult to put into words how happy we are to see so many lives being changed thanks to our platform. We’re thankful for everyone who helped make us what we are today and we look forward to what the future holds for Acadium and our members!
