This investment in growth, backed by Beech Tree Private Equity and Learnlight’s management team, continues their series of acquisitions in different key markets such as the UK, France and Germany as part of their global strategic expansion. Learnlight proved with the acquisition of IBE in January 2021, it can successfully digitally transform more traditional training businesses, thus benefiting from the combination of their deep regional market knowledge and the innovative product suite brought by Learnlight.
