EduMe, announced today it has raised $20 million in Series B funding led by Prosus with participation from Workday Ventures, the strategic arm of Workday Inc. Series A lead investor Valo Ventures is also participating in the round.
“Currently, 80% of the global workforce is deskless, but the vast majority of them aren’t given the necessary tools and training to be successful,” says Jacob Waern, CEO and Founder of EduMe. “Covid has brought increased urgency and awareness to how critical deskless workers are in our society, from delivery drivers to retail and hospitality staff to healthcare workers, and many more. This is where we step in, delivering technology-enabled access to knowledge, which in turn enables wider workforce success. This investment confirms our position as the category defining platform for deskless workforce training.
EduMe is a mobile-based training platform for the deskless workforce, used by modern companies in more than 60 countries worldwide.
The new funding will allow EduMe to step up investments in product innovation and development, strengthen its leading position in on-demand workforce training, as well as expand its availability to even more deskless verticals in its core U.S. market and globally.
