Our Story Begins with a Focus on Family Legacy

When DeMario and Dawn Nicole McIlwain founded Skilldora, they had a big vision and a passion for revolutionizing the eLearning market. But they also knew they wanted their family to be a part of this journey, so they invited their children – ranging in age from teenagers to young adults – to help build the company's legacy.

One summer evening, the McIlwains gathered their family in the living room for a special dinner. DeMario, the CEO, shared his heart-felt vision for Skilldora with his family, presenting his pitch with emotion and excitement. COO Dawn Nicole, meanwhile, served up a delicious meal and dessert, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for their children to join in the fun.

After dinner, the couple led a hands-on training tutorial, introducing their children to the company's proprietary tools and inviting them to design courses as part of their lifetime stock ownership in the company. It was a powerful moment, as the family came together to create something special and meaningful.

As they worked together to research and structure courses, competing against each other and listening to Motown's greatest hits, the McIlwains knew they were building more than just a company – they were building a legacy. And to this day, they are proud to have introduced their children to entrepreneurship, A.I. technology skills, and advanced course creation, and to know that a portion of every course sale goes to their earliest adopters – their children.
