Visibly, a London-based startup built for the blue- and green-collar industries, has raised $7.5 million in funding. The round was led by Creandum, the European backer of Spotify and Klarna, which recently invested in Plancraft and Codesphere. The round also saw participation from existing investors Seedcamp, Brighteye Ventures, Triple Point, and prominent business angels.

Funds utilisation

The latest round of funding will be used to build the Visibly team. Alongside hiring, the company will accelerate product development and the breadth of regulated certifications it offers to keep pace with its growing customer base.

What challenge does it resolve? 

There is currently a huge skills gap in the infrastructure sector. Businesses are commercially and criminally liable for making sure their people have the certifications they need, but there’s no simple way to get this done.

Visibly was founded to do just that. By modernising the approach, blue- and green-collar workers can get the education they deserve and the built environment can get the expertise it needs. 

What does Visibly do?

Visibly was founded in 2021 by Kane St Quintin, who previously built the construction company Pickr. Since then, the team has grown to include Chief Learning Officer Kirsten Campbell-Howes (ex-Busuu, Chegg). 

It is a tech platform rebuilding regulated training for the infrastructure sector from the ground up. The company’s user-first technology gives workers an education that’s on-demand, adapts to their capabilities, and translates to the world around them. It also provides access to advantages that office workers take for granted when undergoing training, such as peer-to-peer feedback and expert-led coaching. Its clients include Hitachi, Kier, and SRL.

Kane St Quintin, Founder and CEO at Visibly said, “Think of someone digging a hole (excavating). Sounds simple, but hit a high-pressure pipeline and you’ve got fatal consequences. It’s a dangerous task – so how is it taught? In a classroom, with a 20-question written assessment. This is clearly ridiculous. It’s situations like this – and their larger-scale impact – that we’ve set out to change.” 

Hanel Baveja, Investor at Creandum, stated, “We’re excited to back the Visibly team in disrupting a massive and completely underserved market in Europe: blue- and green-collar certification and compliance. As we’ve seen with many amazing companies we have partnered with, their unparalleled focus on user experience in a legacy-dominated market and first-hand experience with these problems convinced us that this was the team to back.”

SRL’s Service Director Alison Spooner stated “Giving our users ongoing access to expert-led training and testing their competence through Visibly makes sure they’re doing their jobs safely and effectively. Visibly is a vital tool for us as we look to expand our user base.” 

What do we think about Visibly?

Having raised $7.5 million in funding, Visibly’s tech gives businesses the tools they need to close the industry’s skills gap. It does this by ensuring frontline workforces get training that adapts to their capabilities and translates to the world around them.
