Los Angeles – November 21, 2019 – LeggUP Inc., the groundbreaking professional development platform that delights employees by enabling them to find meaning within their careers, has entered a new phase of growth with the announcement that it has finalized its first round of outside funding, raising a total of $2 million dollars primarily from WFG Family Ventures.
The LeggUP platform allows enterprise clients to reimagine their professional development programs by offering more personalized experiences within their employee benefits packages. Through the platform, an enterprise’s custom coaching programs are aligned with individual learners’ goals and the company’s strategy to deliver employee growth. LeggUP’s proprietary Signature Programs address some of the most common reasons people seek career development, including Career Empowerment, Leadership Development, Building High Performance, and Career Transitions.
The new influx of capital will be instrumental in LeggUP’s pursuit of its next steps of growth, while also bolstering the mission the company has pursued from the very beginning. “Everyone is in agreement that coaching is a benefit to professionals of all types; but there is not consensus on the best way for companies to go about increasing access to professional development in a way that is meaningful, standardized, and affordable,” remarked Tom Finn, co-founder of the platform. “LeggUP was designed from the very beginning to make career growth programs more approachable, while also making it an attractive option for HR leaders and managers to transform their workplace culture.”
This initial seed round of investment will contribute toward a range of growth areas, including infrastructure to expand learner-facing capabilities and equip the coaching community with new tools. Funds will also go toward the bolstering and further development of proprietary signature programs that fulfill an increasing range of individual learner and enterprise-wide goals.
LeggUP is a transformational career development and employee engagement platform that empowers people and enterprises in the international business community to develop via quality career coaching. Through its progressive technology, LeggUP connects, motivates, and educates business coaches, learners, and organizations to catapult growth.
