Leading digital adoption and enablement platform Spekit announced today the close of a $12.2 million Series A investment round. The investment, led by Foundry Group and Renegade Partners, with participation from Operator Collective, Matchstick Ventures and Bonfire Ventures, brings the company’s total fundraising to $15.7 million.
Founded in 2018 by CEO, Melanie Fellay and Zari Zahra, co-founder and head of product and technology, Spekit is one of only three women-led companies in the broader digital adoption, enablement and Learning Management System (LMS) space.
“Between the quantum leap of SaaS adoption, accelerated rate of change and shift to remote work, the world looks drastically different today than it did a decade ago,” said Fellay. “Yet, when I looked at the way employees were being trained and enabled in their roles, there’d been little to no progress over that same timeline. We’re using more digital tools and increasingly complex workflows but the expectation remains that an employee will figure it all out with a PowerPoint presentation or LMS course. The solution became so clear. Of course, learning should be integrated into an employee’s flow of work. Obviously, training and resources should be contextualized, personalized and instantly accessible. We need to make it as easy to learn in our professional lives as it is in our personal lives.”
With this latest funding round, Spekit will further advance the product by developing smarter, more personalized learning experiences and scaling its go-to-market operations.
