Learningbank, which strengthens employees’ competence development and digital learning, has received a major investment of millions. The money is earmarked for the development of new technology and data security.
When your company employees need to develop their skills, learn about food hygiene, or are ready for the next step on the ladder, they can put on VR glasses, go into a parallel universe and learn skills through play and games. Or at least it’s on the drawing board now at Learningbank, which has received a major investment.
The investment comes from IT entrepreneur Rasmus Aaen Madsenat at the same time as investors Sato Holding and Vækstfonden have increased their funding. The latter by another two million.
New technologies in focus
Learningbank was founded by Stine Schulz in 2014. Last year she was nominated for two Growth Awards. The company can best be described as a digital learning agency for competence development and has in a short time gained customers that include the Red Cross, Telia, Emmery’s, and Novo Nordisk.
The money will be used to develop new learning technologies, such as virtual reality or augmented reality so that the learning will take place in a span between technology and reality.
“ There is a huge potential in the new technologies. Abroad, we see examples of how VR and AR are transforming the way we do things – from buying his new home to going to the doctor. When we talk about learning, the potential is even greater if possible. Learningbank has gained some exciting experiences with gamification with our customers, where we use elements from games and play to make learning motivating. When we then add AR, it means that the user can have an unforgettable learning experience, ”says Stine Schulz and adds:
“And that is exactly what we want with learning. That you remember what you have learned so that you can use it to become even more skilled and have even more success with what you do. The newt knows o gives is for us only relevant e, if we can translate them into real value for people, because if we succeed in that, then we’re going to create even better results with our customers. “
Danske Bank creates a virtual learning universe with Learningbank
Together with Danske Bank, Learningbank has created a virtual learning universe that is also part of the bank’s 2020 strategy.
“Usually it is really difficult to follow up on behavior. But now we can follow it much more closely because we can see who is training and how much they are training. And I can say to the local leaders in the countries, ‘Well, if you want change, you must also use the training material actively.’ This is a huge advantage, ”says Marianne Lykke Nielsen, Senior Business Consultant & Project Manager at Danske Bank.
