We are so excited to announce the acquisition of Coorpacademy, an innovative corporate learning platform and content library with a multinational customer base. With offices in France and Switzerland, Coorpacademy will support Go1’s growth plans for Europe, a notable region, expanding its large corporate learning market, and its already vast offerings of digital learning and education resources.
This latest acquisition presents a big opportunity for Go1 and moves the needle closer to our goal of reaching one billion learners globally, as well as highlighting Go1's commitment to continuing momentum of steady growth following its $200M Series D funding round in July 2021. As we continue to scale globally as a leader in the corporate education space, we plan to focus on expansion in the US and Europe but are looking forward to the opportunities of reaching and impacting new regions in the future.
“Go1’s core purpose is to help organisations and learners access great content from thousands of content providers. The combination with Coorpacademy brings an exciting set of new content partners into the mix, and ultimately helps us reach more skills and areas of interest for our customers,” said Andrew Barnes, CEO and co-founder of Go1. “Coorpacademy is already well established in France and Switzerland, and we are excited about this geographic expansion.”
This integration will focus on augmenting existing products and content libraries to ensure that a variety of users have content that fits the needs of their customers. Nearly one million users already utilise Coorpacademy's current offering so its integration into Go1 will accelerate professional growth and development, and support Go1's dedication to the mission of lifelong learning. Additionally, this acquisition will enhance Go1’s existing roots in Europe and extend the e-learning content library in this region to support the growing demand for quality content.
“Go1’s unique approach to learning and development through curated playlists makes this company and leadership team an ideal partner for Coorpacademy,” said Jean-Marc Tassetto, Coorpacademy’s Co-Founder and CEO. “Not only is this a great opportunity for our two companies to come together to make corporate education accessible to millions of learners, but it adds value for existing customers that are prioritizing and expanding their learning and development resources. We are looking forward to building the future of L&D with Go1.”
Go1 are also super excited to announce that Coorpacademy’s co-founders Arnauld Mitre, Frederick Benichou and Jean-Marc Tassetto will be joining the Go1 leadership team to continue to support company growth and oversee the day-to-day operations for Coorpacademy.
