Corporate training start-up Attensi – which originally emerged from Oslo, Norway – raised $ 26 million from Lugard Road Capital, DX Ventures (a venture capital fund backed by Delivery Hero) and existing New York-based shareholder Viking Venture. The new funding will be used to expand in North America and Europe.
Attensi uses a playful approach to corporate training, putting employees in 3D simulations of their workplace and work processes. Its competitors include companies like GoSkills, Mindflash SAP Litmos Skilljar.
The pandemic moving all office work to remote digital training platforms like this will benefit.
It’s also another recent example of how American VCs are “chasing” startups in Europe, putting pressure on local VCs.
Attensi co-founder and co-CEO, Trond Aas, said in a statement: “With gamified simulation training, we have combined the best of work psychology with our expertise in simulation and gamification to create a new category of training solutions. “
The company claims to have recorded a 63% CAGR in recurring annual revenue. Its customers include Daimler Mercedes Benz, Circle K, Equinor, BCG and ASDA.
Doug Friedman, Partner at Lugard Road Capital, said: “We couldn’t be more excited to invest in the Attensi team as they work to change and improve the learning and development of the company thanks to their Attensi solutions. ”
