GRAND RAPIDS — March 23, 2022 — Inno-Versity, a globally recognized eLearning firm, announced today that it will be merging with Th3rd Coast Digital Solutions, an industry leader in media production and extended reality (XR). The two companies will combine under the name MindSpring.

“We’re extremely excited about what this means for our clients,” said Joel Ippel, VP of Sales and Marketing at Inno-versity. “Our consultative approach will remain unchanged, but now we have more collective tools at our disposal for helping to solve client challenges.”

As a result of the merger, the new combined organization will offer a broader set of solutions to its clients, in the areas of digital content, consulting and strategy, and innovative technology. Inno-Versity clients will benefit from additional immersive technology expertise and media production capabilities, while Th3rd Coast clients will benefit from expanded learning science and consulting offerings.

“We’ve built a great team at Th3rd Coast,” said Joseph Van Harken, Chief Innovation Officer. “By bringing our two organizations together under a single brand, we’ll provide even more opportunity for all team members and better service to our clients.”

Century Technology Group, the parent of both Inno-Versity and Th3rd Coast, announced the acquisition of Th3rd Coast in August of 2021. Due to their complementary offerings, the decision was made to bring the companies together under a single brand. According to Century Technology Group leadership, both companies bring deep expertise in their respective areas and a strong portfolio of happy clients.
