HRtech Anthropos raises $2.7M months after launch

HRtech Anthropos has raised $2.7M for its employee upskilling platform.

With offices in the US and Switzerland, Anthropos’ helps companies centralise their skills, employee experiences and training libraries whilst planning dedicated paths for every role inside the organisation. The aim is to enabled employees’ ideal amount of growth and flexibility whilst taking into account how change would affect the company structurally and accommodating in kind. Alongside this dynamism, Anthropos’ software verifies soft and technical skills at different stages of the employee lifecycle, from hiring to training and progression.

Customisable “Virtual job simulations” purport to screen candidates at scale and to prepare them for new roles, letting them make mistakes in conversation with (virtual) customers and other teams whilst learning from them in a safe environment. It’s also designed to act as a network; employees can see the skills their colleagues have, learn how they acquired them, and ultimately pinpoint potential mentors to help them grow.

The pre-seed round is led by Switzerland-based Founderful with additional participation from Eden Ventures, Exor Ventures, Zanichelli Venture, Alessandro Rivetti and several angel investors across the EU and US.

After a successful launch earlier this year, Anthropos plans to provide companies and employees access to thousands of skill paths and AI Simulations for roles and skills across multiple departments that every organisation can customise. 

“Giacomo and I envision Anthropos becoming the solution for companies to manage and develop all their competencies. In a world that will be redesigned by AI in every role, we believe it’s a great opportunity to help everyone transform their careers,” said CEO Stefano Bellasio.

Antonia Albert, Principal at Founderful added: "We believe that every employee wants to grow and evolve, and that lack of career development and advancement is one of the key drivers of employee turnover. Using AI to democratise career paths and skills development is such a great mission. We are convinced that Stefano and Giacomo, after having successfully scaled and sold their previous tech company, are the right founders to give both companies and employees the transparency needed to enable clear career paths and professional as well as personal growth.”
