Growloop, a Stockholm-based education technology startup has raised €1 million in a seed round.
With the new financing, the company plans to help the EdTech tool scale and bring its vision of democratized professional development to more people and organisations across the continent.
Founded in 2021, Growloop developed out of V3VO, a digital learning platform with the vision to help every human have a balanced and fulfilled work life. It’s an impact-driven endeavour based on the belief that in order to change the world for the better, we all need to unleash the power of the leader within. The startup arises from the collaboration between leadership consultants, entrepreneurs and investors with ambition and willingness to democratize leadership development.
Growloop is on a mission to reach 1 billion people who want to boost their leadership skills and unlock their potential. The firm is backed by 9 shareholders, the majority owners are the founders and global leadership consultants Mattias Seger and Monica Edgren. Johan Landgren is the CEO and also co-founder. Sting, Hans Isoz, Karl Wassgren, Rebecka Eriksson, and the coach Jenny Rosenkrantz, Ideabits plus an international investor are also included among the shareholders.
Commenting on the investment, Co-founder & CEO of Growloop, Johan Landgren, said,
“Given the challenges and opportunities we have as individuals, organizations and the world, we need the keys to how we can thrive and grow sustainably and even regenerative. To create and reach more meaningful results together. With the new resources, we can now further equip Growloop with more growth power, new learning experiences and AI features. At the same time, we can invest in supporting growth journeys in many more European organizations. A big win for everyone.”
The app is being used to support leadership development in fast-paced organizations as part of strategy to expand faster, including the likes of Forex, Peltarion and Drama Queen. Launching Growloop is a major milestone in achieving a world where more people have the leadership skills they need to navigate complexity.
Comprising a digital leadership coach and trainer, the Growloop allows teams of all sorts to develop skills – meaning staff at all levels (from juniors to managers) can grow together and learn together. The startup is also affordable and cost-effective, so accessible to teams of all sizes and revenues. It means they can reach meaningful results and outcomes faster, on a bigger scale and at a smaller cost.
