FRANKLIN, Tenn., Nov. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Hyatt & Company has reached an agreement to sell its popular online membership, Platform University, to Inc. 5000 company, Advance Your Reach. Platform University first launched in 2013 and has since served more than 25,000 students in helping them build an engaged online following. It was one of the first products launched by Michael Hyatt & Company and has paved the way for the company's current success.
As Michael Hyatt & Company evolved, their focus shifted from coaching platform builders to coaching business owners, executives, leaders, and their teams.

The search ended when they identified Pete Vargas, CEO of Advance of Your Reach. The sale to Advance Your Reach was finalized on October 30, 2020.
"There are two reasons we're excited about Platform University," said Pete Vargas. "One, there's never been a better time to build an online platform.

"This deal is great news for Platform University members," said CEO Michael Hyatt. "Advance Your Reach is the go-to market leader helping individuals use stages whether physical or virtual to take their messages to the world. Because of this unique expertise, they are poised to strengthen and further develop the value and support our members' experience.
