Lepaya, a provider of soft skills training courses has raised €5 million from media group Mediahuis. This funding will enable the Amsterdam-based startup to accelerate the implementation of its projected growth plans. At the same time, this investment will allow Lepaya to further develop its range of training courses and the underlying technology. On the other hand, Mediahuis is taking another step in its diversification strategy.
René Janssen, Managing Director and co-founder of Lepaya: “In the business community, soft skills will make the difference in the years ahead. Today, many businesses are also looking for a partner that can help them to educate employees. Over the past period, we have seen an increase in the influx of customers looking for a high-impact approach, especially now that many businesses need to accelerate the re-skilling of their staff due to the current economic situation. Mediahuis’ injection of capital provides us with the opportunity to grow both geographically and in terms of our range of products and services.”
