2022. Odilo raises $64M for its white-label e-learning software
Odilo, a Madrid-based startup that has built a white-label platform used by businesses or organizations to build their own customized e-learning offerings in a B2B2C model, has picked up €60 million ($64 million). The company has grown out of two significant trends in tech. The first is the rise of e-learning, which in its widest view can include both school learning as well as professional training. The second is the rise of “headless” systems: Services that are built as extensible platforms, where customers are given the option of using a variety of APIs and other tools to build out their own customized experiences on top of them. Odilo is effectively using that same model and applying it to e-learning.

But when it comes to having tough conversations with employees, coaching them through a challenge, or leading discussions on diversity and inclusion, strong communication and interpersonal skills are absolutely necessary. Hone provides a platform that gives managers the tools they need, and lets them practice those skills, without bringing them to an in-person two-day conference that has no real lasting effect.
