The co-founders behind Intellimins
, Maureen and Mike Foresman, like to reference the movie The Matrix
when it comes describing the inspiration behind their Troy-based start-up.
Specifically, they point to a scene where Trinity and Neo are faced with needing the knowledge to fly a helicopter and immediately are able to download the skills needed. Intellimins likes to advertise itself as a website that provides "business intelligence in minutes" (Ie. short educational videos).
"As a business person you're facing a lot of dynamic challenges these days," Maureen Foresman says. "The availability of instantaneous, credible information is not always there."
Intellimins leverages cloud-based technology that offers these sorts of online learning solutions, including certificate courses, for business, government and education. The videos are available on PC’s, tablets and smartphones on a 24/7 basis.
"Everything on our site is done by experts that work for Fortune 100 companies," Maureen Foresman says. "You're getting field-proven techniques."
Maureen and Mike Foresman started the company a year ago and launched it earlier this year. They are working to make Intellimins the go-to source for this sort of information across the country.
