History of Encore

Mike Bell and Michael Wegmann founded Encore Software Inc. from a Venice, California, basement apartment in 1994. At first, success came from previously released software. Fortunes turned to gold when the company developed its own original content and launched into the educational market. Best-selling titles included Math Advantage, along with bundles like Family MegaHits and Millenium MegaHits. From this tremendous growth, Encore made Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in 2000.

In August 2002, Encore became a majority-owned subsidiary of Navarre Co. Today, Encore ranks as a top interactive software publisher. Customers rely on Encore for titles covering personal productivity, utility, education and gaming. Besides retail publishing, the Eden Prairie, Minnesota-based company sells direct to customers through its managed sites, including:
