Austin based learning and development company announces seed funding

Verb has successfully raised $6.4M in seed funding from angel investors including Brett Hurt, Nav Sooch, Andy Roddick, Leon Chen, and Barshop Ventures. The funds will be used to accelerate sales and product development of Verb’s B2B SaaS platform offering affordable and scalable leadership development for employees.

“We are at an exciting moment in time when companies realize that leadership development isn’t just for senior employees,” says Verb co-founder and CEO Suzi Sosa, “Our customers are unlocking the full potential of their teams offering our platform to everyone. The results they see include better employee retention, engagement, and performance.”

Verb is a pioneer in the HR and ed-tech sectors with one of the first platforms focused on training employees on sought-after soft skills by using a blended learning model. “Verb provided us with the opportunity to offer leadership development as a benefit to our team members,” said Whole Foods Market CEO John Mackey.

The investment will enable Verb to accelerate growth by expanding its marketing and sales team and through key product enhancements, including personalized learning, expanding the content library, and a new mobile app.
