Landit, the platform helping users get ahead in their careers, has ended its $13 million Series A funding round.
WeWork led the funding round. Other investors include Connectivity Partners, Morgan Stanley, and Gingerbread Capital. Connectivity Partners focuses on early-stage founders of technology companies, while Gingerbread Capital invests in high-growth, women-led companies.
Lisa Skeete Tatum created Landit after spending time as a venture capitalist at Cardinal Partners, a $350 million firm. Now she’s on the other side of the deal, securing funding for her own company.
Landit is a platform that helps individuals and companies improve their corporate experiences. Landit provides a professional playbook, goals and other tools to help employees solidify raises and promotions.
On the company-focused side of Landit, the platform assists businesses in improving retention and diversity rates. According to a Landit spokesperson, the company increased women’s mobility within one company by 20 percent.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2.3 percent of working Americans voluntarily quit their jobs every month. Landit makes sure that companies aren’t on the chopping block and enables them to build better working environments. The platform also provides strategies that improve employee engagement within businesses.
“[The funding] could not have come at a more opportune time as organizations are seeking meaningful solutions to engage and support high potential diverse talent, truly valuing inclusion and not just diversity,” said Landit’s spokesperson.
Landit is using its latest funding round to scale its offerings.
