StellarUp, an Amsterdam-based HRTech SaaS platform, has raised $545,000 (€500,000) in a seed round led by an undisclosed US tech investor. The company plans to use the funds to improve and accelerate user interface and experience design (UI/ UX) features and integration and boost marketing.
Founded in 2020 by Estelle Roux-Stevens and Julian Roux-Stevens, StellarUp aims to help organisations create diverse and inclusive communities that recognise the inherent potential in their differences and encourage collaboration, allowing individuals to thrive in connection and reach their goals through the power of mentorship and community. The platform improves knowledge sharing through organised and unstructured learning tools, including mentor programmes, e-learning academies, online resource libraries, and community solutions.
Commenting on the fundraising, Co-founder of StellarUp, Estelle Roux-Stevens, said:
We are incredibly excited about the future of StellarUp. With this capital investment and level of trust, our mission-driven team is primed to expand our product’s reach and elevate it to new heights of improved performance, speed, and excellence.
