Hone Raises $16M to Reimagine Corporate Training
Hone has successfully raised $16 million USD in Series A financing. The round was led by F-Prime Capital with participation from Cowboy Ventures, NextGen Venture Partners, Slack Fund, Gaingels, Swift Ventures, and SemperVirens.
“At Hone, we believe that training should be a life-changing experience accessible to anyone, regardless of seniority or location. We are building a new kind of corporate learning experience to address the massive transformation of how modern teams work, ensuring a more productive, equitable, and human workplace.” Said Tom Griffiths, CEO of Hone. “We are thrilled to be partnering with the team at F-Prime, who share our and our existing investors’ vision of the future of learning at work.”
Hone’s platform combines the engagement and social interaction of the classroom with the scale and analytics of e-learning, where live online classes are now possible with the ubiquity of video conferencing. Initially focused on manager training, Hone’s lessons now also include people skills, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training for all employees.
The funding will be used to strengthen Hone’s platform capabilities for live online training and to build out Hone’s go-to-market team. As part of the round, John Lin of F-Prime Capital will join the board.
