About Lepaya

Lepaya is a provider of power skills training that combines online and offline learning. Founded by René Janssen and Peter Kuperus in 2018 with the perspective that the right training, at the right time, focused on the right skill, makes organizations more productive, Lepaya has trained thousands of employees.

As a challenger in a crowded training market, Lepaya responds to the needs of Europe’s fastest growing tech companies, such as Mollie, Takeaway and Picnic, amongst others. By combining hard skills with soft skills, offered together as power skills, the Amsterdam-based company is growing faster in a market in which the demand for reskilling and upskilling continues to increase all over the world.

In 2020, Lepaya closed a €5M funding round and independently made an acquisition of Smartenup, a training company that supports professionals to work better, faster and smarter with data. The scale-up focuses on the Dutch, Belgian, German and Swedish markets and serves its customers worldwide. This year Lepaya was selected by Techleap.nl for the new batch of the growth program Rise, an exclusive program for fast growing tech players in the Netherlands. At the beginning of 2021 Lepaya has achieved NRTO certification and became a member of the NRTO Association – the Dutch council for training and education.
