Sunlight secures £500k seed funding

Nov 2, 2017

London-based learning and development start-up Sunlight has secured £500k in seed funding. The round was led by Speedinvest, alongside previous backers Seedcamp and Annection. Sunlight was founded last year by brothers Carlos Lagrange and Juan Lagrange with the aim of helping businesses develop a learning culture. It provides a SaaS platform that allows companies to allocate individual learning and development budgets to employees, which they can then spend on online courses, books, events or tuition. The idea is that employees are placed in control of their learning path, but managers do have the option to control training plans, the type of learning material available and approval paths, so employees don’t necessarily get a completely free rein. With ongoing concerns about skills shortages, the competition to find and retain the best employees is high. We can see how Sunlight could form a valuable part of a learning and development programme to help motivate employees to take ownership of their workplace education. However, it’s a competitive market and Sunlight will need to work hard to compete against other learning and development solutions such as online learning platforms like Lynda as well as business-focused MOOCs such as Udemy.
