The investment will be used to accelerate the business globally, as well as to help continue the development of its platform.

Edinburgh-based training management software firm, Administrate, has secured £2.25 million of growth capital from NVM Private Equity (NVM) as part of a fresh investment round.

Additional funding was secured from existing investors, Archangels, and the Scottish Investment Bank – bringing the total to £3.78 million.

The company previously secured £1.7 million in a funding round led by Archangels in December 2015.

The investment will be used to accelerate the business globally, the firm said, as well as to help continue the development of its platform.

The firm employs more than 80 people and has offices in Lebanon, the US and Edinburgh’s Codebase incubator.

North American expansion has been a key driver for the company over the past 12-months.

Its platform helps clients solve the challenges of defining, delivering, tracking, analysing and scaling learning within an organisation.
