Doug Donovan is the CEO and Co-Founder of Interplay Learning, a leader in Virtual Reality and 3D simulation training and testing software for the skilled and industrial trades. More than 70,000 students and professionals have used Interplay 3D training products to learn a technical skill set. In September, Interplay launched a first-of-its-kind last mile training solution that has the power to transform how “hands-on” careers–like electricians, plumbers, and HVAC technicians–are accessed and trained. Like Linkedin Learning but for skilled trades, Interplay is delivering a low-priced, on-demand skills catalog, powered by Virtual Reality and Interplay’s unique technology.
Prior to Interplay, Donovan’s background includes founding a VC-backed software firm, developing a green products company and even building a ski area in Colorado. Donovan holds a BA from the University of Virginia, and an MBA from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.
