unlocking phase 2 of the revolution
launching exec-ed with courses, workshops, learning circles and more.
for the last 25 months, there’s been a silent revolution brewing in india. we call it leap.club.
we started this company with a bold mission – more women in leadership positions. after a lot of research, many early learnings and a few pivots, we realised that there are three critical levers to accelerate this mission:
community & connections: this is where we started 2 years ago; something that continues to remain at the heart of what we’re building
learning & development: exec-ed that’s tailor-made for women professionals; to address their every learning/upskilling need
jobs & opportunities: talent solutions to enable the right career moves for women, by connecting them to the world’s top workplaces
the last 2 years of building this community has been a ride full of crazy ups and scary downs. but the biggest high is always the member love we get. it tells us that despite changing lanes a few times, we’re headed in the right direction.
today our community has 8000+ paying members. these members come from 15 countries, 100+ cities and 3000+ companies. all our products today, be it superconnections (1:1 connections), micro-communities, or events & experiences, have helped our members discover and connect with other like-minded people. these relationships are both professional (partnerships, jobs, services) as well as social (book clubs, gin & wine clubs, sports clubs).
to give you a sense of our scale now, we enabled 11000+ 1:1 connections in the month of may 2022. we have 200+ active micro-communities (internally called clubhouses) in which 50,000+ messages were exchanged in the last month alone. we hosted over 30 experiences (virtually & offline across 14 cities), and our members hosted ~20 meetups by themselves. about 10% of our member base attended at least 1 event in the month!
we’re bullish on the impact of steady ‘network effects’ and will continue to double down on building our community of women from across the world. but today, it’s time to activate phase 2 of our mission.
we're thrilled to announce learn with leap.club, focused on women. it’s ready. it’s brewed. it's taken blood and sweat, and we're so excited to bring it to you.
we spoke to more than 20,000 women in the last 2 years and built a deep understanding of the unique challenges that women face at the workplace. to further validate our learnings, we hosted 10+ courses last year and got great feedback. we’ve learnt that a great l&d platform needs 3 sides to be successful and learn with leap.club is uniquely built to make women win because —
great creators - our team makes sure we work with (only) the best. we understand what our members want, the ideal duration, the optimum cost and we deliver the right mix of all ingredients. creators love our platform because they get access to the top 1% women in india; who have consistently demonstrated that they’re willing to invest in their growth
great peers - we believe that learning is not only defined by who you learn from, but also who you learn with - and we’re bringing the best of both. since leap.club is a members-only paid platform, the learners are women who are serious about investing in their professional growth. they represent the best of companies and bring unique learning to the table, helping each other learn, grow and ultimately build a professional network
focused and evolving courses - built for and by women. we want to break away from cookie-cutter ways of learning, and only enable needle-movers for our people. from building a stronger executive presence to shaping our personal brands, from learning how to fundraise to building sales engines that thrive, from becoming elite leaders & athletes to overcoming imposter syndrome - we know there is no one-size-fits-all for women and all of our curated learning modules bear this in mind
starting 1st july, we’re launching with these formats (live-virtual, not recorded):
and we’re stoked to welcome some of the biggest names to our classrooms: indra nooyi, faye d’souza, roshan abbas, rashi narang, lulu raghavan, mayanti langer, and many (many) more—
we just went live and opened for registrations, so if you are a leap.club member reading this, head to the app and book your slots.
not a member yet? you can still browse through learning modules by tapping on the link below. however, you’ll need to be a leap.club member to be able to enroll in a course at the moment, so do sign up on the leap.club waitlist to become a member and our team will get in touch with you.
someone recently told us that great businesses have ‘doing good’ baked into their model. if the business takes off, the good (and the business) compounds. this is what we’re striving to build every day.
ps: since we’re an impatient bunch, jobs & talent solutions coming soon. on to phase 2!
