It was Albert Einstein that famously said, “Once you stop learning, you start dying.” All startups better take heed. For emerging and growing businesses, there is no such thing as too much information, at least as it pertains to strategic and relevant resources. That’s why Oracle is pleased to offer members of our Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator program access to new and vital learning and development resources through our partnership with the Oracle Human Resources Virtual Library.

We are committed to providing our startup partners worldwide with continuous learning opportunities that will help them to stay on their strategic paths and enable growth and scale. Oracle HR's Virtual Library gives these startups and their employees on-demand access to critical business and technical information for better learning, decision making and development.

Three invaluable learning resources are being provided:

Harvard ManageMentor: Provides world-class content designed to help leaders, managers, and individuals address the full spectrum of today’s business challenges.

Lynda.com: Offers a tremendous library of video-based classes for learning business, software, technology, and creative skills needed to stay current.

Safari Books Online: Presents a vast digital library of business and technical books, live classes, coding classes, conferences, and videos from the world’s foremost innovators in technology and business.

“Oracle has vast global resources that we are constantly tapping for the benefit of our startups,” said Tiffany Thompson, Director Strategic Partnerships & Events, Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator. “This partnership with Oracle HR’s Virtual Library is yet another example of our continued commitment to over-deliver and enable stronger, more strategic and scalable paths to their emerging businesses.”

“Access to the right information anytime, everywhere is critical to continuous learning and success. We are thrilled to partner with these incredible startups and ensure they also have access to the information they need to develop, innovate, learn, and be successful as a company and individuals,” said Christy Confetti Higgins, Oracle Cybrarian.

Startups will have access to the on-demand virtual library upon selection into our global program. These resources and tools are essential in helping development across almost every area of business from communications to presentation skills to technical acumen and beyond.
