Edtech startup Sunlight, based in London, has raised £500,000 in seed funding from Speedinvest, Seedcamp, and Annection.
Sunlight, founded last year, is a platform for employers to managing learning content and costs for their staff’s professional development. The platform also generates data and insights for employers to find trends in their employees’ learning.
“Learning opportunities are quickly becoming a key driver for the new generation entering the working world and we know that within the tech industry, scale-ups need to find ways to stand out and attract talent when competing against goliaths,” said CEO Carlos Lagrange (pictured, left).
“Offering opportunities to learn is a great way to attract and retain talented individuals within your business, as you grow,” he said. Sunlight’s customers currently include Wonderbly, Skimlinks, and TypeForm.
“This seed round is a key moment for us as we look to work with even more exciting companies and scale up the size of teams that the platform can support,” added Lagrange.
