Learn In Raises $10M for In-house Talent Academies

Learn In, the platform that helps companies establish their own Talent Academies, today announced that it has raised $10 million in Series A funding. The round was led by Firework Ventures, a leading venture firm investing in human-centered Future of Work companies. New investors Kickstart Fund, as well as existing investors GSV Ventures and Album Ventures also participated.

“Across every organization, skill-building needs to continue to expand beyond the outdated models of ‘In-the-flow-of-work’ micro-learning, or under-used licensed content. Listening to a course doesn’t turn you into a data scientist, just as watching a CrossFit video doesn’t turn you into an athlete.” said David Blake, co-founder and CEO of Learn In. “Companies must begin to undertake the work of creating ‘athletes’–i.e. actually engaging in the task of upskilling, which is what we are enabling with Talent Academies.” 

Learn In’s core features include a prepaid learning stipend card, a world-class program marketplace and custom program builder, a tuition benefits manager, and dedicated coaching.

Learn In will use the new capital to expand their technology platform, go-to-market team and customer success capabilities as demand from companies to deploy their own Talent Academies continues to grow
