Arist announced an additional $2 million Seed Round funding for its SMS-based learning app. This brings its total raised to $4.1 million.
In 2020 the learning category received USD $666 million in VC. It was one of the top three categories in the 2020 Global HR Tech VC Lookback. The pandemic and the resulting shift to remote work sparked investor and HR tech buyer interest in new training tech. The learning category is a mature one and has seen repeated disruption as the CLO (Chief Learning Officer) and employees’ expectations shift along with consumer tech trends.
