Go1, one of the world’s largest corporate education content hubs for on-demand training and resources, announced it has raised over $100M in its latest funding round closed in May. The new capital will help Go1 accelerate its journey to reach a billion learners with upskilling, reskilling and knowledge tools that empower workers across the globe.
The round brings Go1’s total funding to over $400M, increasing the company’s valuation to over $2B. Participants in the round include AirTree Ventures, Blue Cloud Ventures, Five Sigma, Madrona, Salesforce Ventures, and SoftBank Vision Fund 2.
Australia-based Go1 continues to invest in the rapid growth of its global ecosystem of corporate learning. North America has recently emerged as Go1’s largest market, and the company has also announced a further step into the European market via the acquisition of Coorpacademy, which extends the company’s French and German language content partner offerings and creator reach.
Similarly, the e-learning company has expanded its reach in Southeast Asia with offices in Malaysia and Singapore, affording multinationals and local organizations the ability to reskill the enterprise and promote ongoing learning. Go1 also expanded its content offering with recent announcements of Pluralsight and Harvard Business Publishing content now available to Go1’s audience base of over 5 million learners.
The new investment round also coincides with key appointments to the executive leadership team. In addition to recently welcoming Marc Havercroft, formerly of SAP SuccessFactors, Go1 welcomes:
