Berlin-based Innential has raised “close to” €1 million in a seed round that will see the company up its tech capabilities alongside strengthening its sales teams in what it’s calling both the Polish and European markets. The last time I checked, Poland was a part of Europe, but alas. The startup also says the funding will be used for “other things” as well.
Innential’s “close to” €1 million seed round was led by the Polish venture capital funds Tar Heel Capital Pathfinder and bValue with Campus Founders and a group of angel investors participating.
In a similar style to AG5, Innential says it can offer organisations the ability to map and analyse the competency needs of their talent, link them with educational content through personalized growth plans, and monitor their career progress.
"Our goal is to make it easy for companies to create career development experiences that grow and retain top tech talent. From diagnostics to personalized educational resources and effortless progress tracking, Innential covers it all," explained Inneital co-founder Daniel Carter.
According to the company, their client list includes software consulting firm Nortal, online insurance broker Luko, and SMA Solar Technology, it’s up to you to figure out what they do.
On the investment, bValue’s Marcel Animucki commented, “For tech companies, working with the best specialists is key for growth. As a result, they must pay special attention to keeping talent in the team. Innential has been created for this purpose. Increasing employees’ satisfaction levels directly impacts how they view their future in the company and affects their retention levels, helping build and scale modern technological organisations.”
