About Victory Lap:

The future of education and work is approaching new heights with the onset of COVID and the realization that formal educational institutions aren’t doing enough to bridge the gap between education and career success.  There are over 500 bootcamps across North America, and Victory Lap has been one of the leading sales bootcamps in the country since launching just over 4 years ago. It is our firm belief that sales is the greatest profession in the world when done right and we have modernized the approach to enable more individuals to break into a sales career successfully.  

As a result of building a premier sales education program for aspiring professionals, we’ve been able to curate a list of top company partners that rely on our talent marketplace to help build their sales teams with ready-to-sell talent. 

Since 2016 we have graduated over 1000 Victory Lap students and partnered with more than 175 companies.
