Almi Invest invests in the Edtech company Learnster, which develops the next generation’s learning platform for companies engaged in education or internal competence development. Söderberg & Partners also participates in the financing round. The capital will be used for further development of the platform and for continued market launch.
Stockholm-based Learnster offers a cloud-based learning platform, where trainers can design and distribute courses and educations in relevant learning environments. Learnster is suitable for both the teacher-led, physical classroom and e-learning programs and everything in between.
The learning platform contains a user-friendly design tool to easily create courses and educations, as well as functionality for publishing courses, handling course participants and course programs, automation of bookings and handling of payments.
The platform is built with state-of-the-art technology and is responsive, making it work on all types of digital devices – from computer to mobile. This enables the participant to learn on his / her terms and take part in the course content – before, during and after the training.
“Learnster facilitates lifelong learning, which is becoming more important in today’s working life,” says Jens Bäckbom, investment manager at Almi Invest. “The platform is as powerful for small educational companies as for large companies and is fully adapted to today’s and the future’s digital climate, giving the company good potential to succeed,” he continues.
Although the Learnster learning platform was launched relatively recently on the market, it has already proven itself very competitive in terms of large-scale, established systems. The customer list includes the SATSELIXIA gym chain, which is already running and uses the system for introductory training for its 8,000 employees.
“We are very pleased to welcome Almi Invest as an investor,” says Learnster’s CEO Mikael Larsson. “With the help of their capital, skills and network, we can further increase the pace of our development.”
