Zobito, Roosgruppen AB, Inter-Invest A/S and The Danish Growth Fund are investing 14 million DKK in Learningbank, a tech company, which creates inspiring digital learning solutions to improve learning experiences for employees and boosting the results for the businesses.
“We have proven that some of the largest enterprises in this country have a major need for what we offer, and that’s why we are proud to get a very successful team of investors onboard, who believe in our purpose and vision,” Stine Schulz says, Founder and CEO in Learningbank.
The investors are a particularly great match because they are experienced in making tech companies grow even more and making them mature for an international marketplace. That is the case for Zobito, which has a team, who are responsible for the success of QlikTech, a company which went from having revenue of 2 million USD in 1998 to be listed in the NASDAQ index and having revenue of 1 billion USD in 2010.
Jens Schroeder from Zobito is one of the new investors in Learningbank, and he is excited about the collaboration in the future:
“Some of the greatest challenges in business today are to attract, develop, and retain employees, and that is something Learningbank can help solving by creating attractive learning environments. On top of that, the feedback Learningbank receives from their customers is phenomenal, so we are thrilled to support Learningbank and bring them even more success.”
Besides making it to the international arena, Learningbank will use the investment in developing their digital learning and innovative SaaS learning platform for creating even better learning experiences along with their customers.
“I believe that we can make the world a better place with our digital learning experience solutions . and that’s why I’m proud of finding a new match for the next part of the Learningbank-journey – and not just in Denmark,” Stine Schulz says with a final gesture for previous investors:
”I’m grateful for the previous investors, who believed in me and my little dream of creating a better foundation for employee development.”
