About Us

Abilitie’s seasoned leadership development professionals deliver award-winning leadership programs to Fortune 500 companies across the globe.

Abilitie has its roots at Harvard Business School, where founder Bjorn Billhardt received his MBA and then worked with his former professors to create some of Harvard’s first interactive online simulations in the early 2000s. Abilitie’s founders moved to Austin and struck a deal with the University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business to commercialize a leadership simulation used by MBA students. Building on those early roots, Abilitie has grown to become a recognized brand in corporate leadership development and has taught 20,000+ high-potential employees at Fortune 500 companies in over 30 countries since 2015.
