The workforce learning platform named HowNow in a pre-series “A” funding round, has recently raised $3 million. This round is guided by the Mark Pearson’s Fuel Ventures and bears the total amount by this startup to $4.5 million and other investors including Andy Murray OBE, Founders the Thomsons Online Benefits named Chris Bruce and Michael Whitfield, the former managing director of Citi Bank named Bernie Sinniah and a former partner of McKinsey named Alwin Magimay also have invested to this startup. HowNow is illustrated as a complete integrated learning platform which will automatically curate the learning resources and the market insights which live in different external and internal sources. The idea is very simple, it is to get these different learning resources together. These learning resources range from the nuggets of the knowledge shared by the existing experts to the internal data to the external content podcasts, blogs and libraries and all of these will match to various job descriptions along with the skill setting of the employees.
This is empowered by the browser integrations and extension with Salesforce, Hubspot, and Slack as well as more than other 300 apps. The machine-learning is too employed to shift the right content to right employee. The company said that the employers could use HowNow to determine the skills gaps within all the companies which are based on the job market via the built-in certification of HowNow and to achieve it, the platform demands to observe more than 20,000 ob specifications to believe the requirements that the companies will be searching for.
