Inception Labs

Educational Media and Brain Hacking

Inception Labs is an eLearning Design and Development company based out of Nashville, Tennessee, specializing in highly-interactive and video-driven eLearning experiences. Past clients have included CHS, Dollar General, Voya Financial, and a number of healthcare, corporate, and higher education clients.

CEO and Founder, Ryan Parish, started Inception Labs to address a very common problem in the eLearning world-- too often, eLearning is boring, irrelevant, and ignores much of what science knows about how people actually learn.

Prior to founding Inception Labs, Ryan worked in a variety of roles in the Learning and Development field, including positions at Apple and a Nissan North America subsidiary.

Ryan holds a Bachelor's degree in Neuroscience, Psychology and Philosophy from Bowling Green State University (OH), and is currently working on a Masters of Education in Organizational Leadership and Communication at Belmont University. He lives with his wife of 7 years and their two young children in the heart of Music City.

COO and Learning Theory Expert, Nathan Dryden, joined Inception Labs in 2014 after several previous positions in non-profit management. He is “addicted" to learning, and is always looking for new subjects to dive into. His vision for Inception Labs is a place where ground-breaking pedagogy and a human-centered approach to technology come together.

Nathan is graduate of Belmont University with a B.A. in Cultural Sociology, and also holds a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University. Currently a resident of Nashville, TN, he and his wife share a full house with their six-month old son, two dogs, two cats, and two chickens.
