Belgian startup MySkillCamp, a digital learning and workplace training platform, has raised €1 million in a round backed by new and existing investors including LeanSquare, Seederfund, WapInvest and SIBA. We previously featured MySkillCamp as one of the top Belgian startups to look out for in 2017.
Founded in 2016 in Tournai, MySkillCamp’s Learning Content Management System (LCMS) solution is used to track, create, manage and administer professional training, in spaces called “Camps”. The platform incorporates tools including courses, quizzes, media, projects, discussions, certificates, and events to facilitate workforce training. Users can also participate in learning “communities”, and receive one-on-one mentoring through the platform. HR departments can monitor employee progress through analytics available on the platform’s dashboard.
Kevin Tillier, co-founder and CEO of MySkillCamp, said: “We wanted to decompartmentalise our teams by offering them a better framework, and facilitate internal collaboration, while anticipating future recruitment needs.”
The startup wants to use the funding to further develop its platform, providing a learning experience that is modern, centralised, participatory, scalable and unified. The all-in-one platform will allow HR departments to create a complete digital training environment for employees by connecting all necessary third-party and proprietary tools.
To support the development of its platform, MySkillCamp plans to focus on recruitment in early 2019, hiring experienced developers, web designers, and AI developers. The startup then plans to focus on strengthening its marketing department, to target potential new customers and grow its business in the French and Belgian markets.
MySkillCamp’s current clients include D’Ieteren, Thalys, Sodexo, Spadel, IFAPME Charleroi, who are using the platform to provide training and professional development for their employees.
