Corporate training startup Attensi — which originally emerged out of Oslo, Norway — has raised $26 million from New York-based Lugard Road Capital, DX Ventures (a VC fund backed by Delivery Hero) and existing shareholder Viking Venture. The new funding will be used to expand in North America and Europe.
Attensi uses a gamified approach to corporate training, putting employees into 3D simulations of their workplace and work processes. Its competitors include companies like GoSkills, Mindflash, SAP Litmos and Skilljar.
With the pandemic shifting all office work to remote, digital training platforms like this stand to benefit. This is also yet another recent example of how U.S. VCs are “going hunting” for startups in Europe, putting pressure on local VCs.
