About HLT:

HLT was sparked by paper flashcards that Alec Whitters, Co-Founder and CEO, and his peers were using to study for their dental boards. Wouldn’t it make better sense, he thought, to use their smartphones to study? When he didn’t find an effective mobile-learning solution, he decided to create it. HLT was born. Since its start in 2012, HLT has attracted millions of learners and become the market-leading platform for mLearning applications.

HLT’s rapid growth is directly attributable to their emphasis on attracting top talent and building a culture that is nationally renowned.  This includes being on Entrepreneur Magazine’s coveted “Top Company Cultures” list in both 2017 and 2018.
