Indianapolis-based Lessonly has completed a $15 million Series C round of funding. The tech company, which provides an online training platform, says it will use the funding for growth, including the launch of a new product later this year.
The funding round was led by AXA Venture Partners, with participation from Zendesk and Atlas Peak Capital in San Francisco, Allos Ventures in Indianapolis, Rethink Education in New York, and New Hampshire-based The Yard Ventures.
“We are committed to investing in SaaS companies that empower their customers and users to ‘be their best’,” said Hilary Shirazi, director of corporate development at Zendesk. “We are impressed with how Lessonly helps customer-facing employees excel at their craft and do better work each and every day. We look forward to furthering our support of an already great partner who is working to enhance customer experience for companies, and customers, everywhere.”
Lessonly says its platform serves more than 1,000 companies, including TrunkClub, HelloFresh and SalesLoft.
The funding comes some three years after Lessonly secured Series B funding. The company also opened its new Indianapolis headquarters last summer.
