GO1, which has created an online platform through which individuals and organisations can find or create courses, has raised $10 million in a Series A round led by Seek, with participation from investors including Our Innovation Fund.
Launched in 2014, Brisbane startup GO1 allows users to browse its marketplace of courses, covering everything from compliance to onboarding and personal development, or create their own.
The startup reports it now hosts more than 500,000 courses and learning resources, with more than 22 million users across clients including Cricket Australia and Adshel having access to its content. The funding will go towards expanding GO1 into new markets.
With Seek a customer of the startup, the investment follows the companies earlier this year partnering to integrate GO1 courses into Seek’s jobs platform.
This integration sees a job seeker presented with relevant courses from GO1 while going through the job search process; if a role requires a particular educational or training requirement, such as first aid skills for example, a corresponding GO1 course will surface.
