Lepaya’s growth journey leads the scale-up to a fifth European market

Lepaya, a provider of customized skills training, is expanding to the United Kingdom, having  distinguished itself in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Sweden. Lepaya is now taking the next big step in its European expansion and, starting today, will help  British companies with their people and business performance.

The British Need for Learning Impact

By 2030, more than 10 million UK workers will be under-skilled in areas such as leadership, consultancy and data-analysis. Lepaya supports and instills confidence in employees to facilitate performance in their role. 

“There is a looming skills shortage in the UK. Digitization, which has been accelerated by the pandemic, poses serious challenges to the UK workforce. By allowing employees to develop the right skills and looking ahead to the labor market of the future, companies can become and remain future-proof. We can’t wait to support British companies in this endeavor,” says René Janssen, founder of Lepaya.

A Training Partner with the Tools  to grow

Lepaya’s growth ambitions, however, are not stopping at the UK border.  In 2020, the scale-up received an investment round of €5 million and continues to acquire innovative learning tools to complement their programs such as Smartenup and vCOACH. 

The Essence of Lepaya’s Growth

Lepaya is a provider of skill trainings  that are  scalable across large organizations.  Founded by René Janssen and Peter Kuperus in 2018 with the motto that the right training, at the right time, focused on the right skill, makes organizations more productive.

As a challenger in a crowded training market, Lepaya realized that innovation would propel the company forward. With personalized trainings incorporating tech such as VR & AI that can compliment customers’ internal L&D  programs, Lepayay has helped talent performance at companies including Mollie, Takeaway and Picnic. By using tech to train  soft & hard skills – Power Skills –  Lepaya’s growth journey has no end in sight.
