In the Beginning....
The concept that would eventually become Plaid was first discussed on a porch at Illinois Institute of Technology after an all-day session with students. The idea percolated until December 4, 2011 when, our founder, Wilson Wong asked a few people to join him for a discussion at his house just North of Atlanta. On that day we discussed whether we could successfully start a company that creates stimulating and thought-provoking learning experiences aimed at changing an organization’s culture. In the simplest way, Plaid was born out of the desire to help people and their organizations be better. For more than 10 years, Plaid has done exactly that. While our products and services have evolved over the years, we have remained true to our vision to help people and organizations be better.
