IT Skills Training Company Secures $2 Million in Series A Funding
QuickStart, an IT skills training company known for its cognitive learning platform, secured $2 million in funding from California-based investment firm Moneta Ventures, as well as Texas-based investment firm Sattar Ventures.
QuickStart originated as a carve-out from 360training that adapted into a cognitive learning platform in 2017. Designed to enable multi-modal knowledge transfer, the platform can be licensed as a subscription to provide IT skills training through online courses, virtual instructor-led classes, 1:1 mentoring on projects, social learning, cognitive learning, learning paths, simulations, and labs. A Microsoft learning partner, QuickStart has gained Comptia, ITIL, and EC-Council accreditations.
The company plans to use the funds to form new partnerships, grow its sales force, and do roll-ups to fuel organic growth.
