Knowledge sharing and learning platform StellarUp is a SaaS solution which provides mentoring programmes, engagement and community to teams. Apparently, the sticky areas that StellarUp has smoothed out are ‘process and operational challenges leading to unsuccessful and un-engaging programmes’.
The Dutch start-up frees up the ‘bottleneck of onboarding, matching of mentor with mentee, managing the relationship, and measuring and scaling engagement and ultimately the return on investment'.
It has raised €500,000 in a Seed funding round led by a ‘US tech investor’ who it would seem has been interested in the firm from the get-go. Funds will allow StellarUp to improve and accelerate its user interface and experience design (UI/ UX) features and integration, and boost marketing.
“We are incredibly excited about the future of StellarUp. With this capital investment and level of trust, our mission-driven team is primed not only to expand our product's reach but also to elevate it to new heights of improved performance, speed, and excellence,” says Estelle Roux-Stevens, co-founder at StellarUp.
The start-up counts Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland, Giving Back, The United Nations Foundation, Aleto Foundation, ScaleNL, and InvestNL amongst its clients.
“Mentoring and knowledge sharing between people play a key role in tackling HR Challenges. SterllarUp’s platform effectively connects grown and learning opportunities within an organisation efficiently. I am impressed by the speed of the founding team to capture opportunities in a fast-growing market by providing unparalleled solutions,” said the mysterious US tech investor who was not so keen on 'knowledge sharing' their name.
