Planday raises 35 million Euros in one of largest funding rounds in Danish history
The UK is a strategic growth market with investment in sales, customer support and a new London development team planned
29 August 2018, London. Planday, the workforce collaboration platform, has announced today that it has closed its Round C fundraising of €35 million Euros. The lead investor is SEB Private Equity, with additional investment from investors in previous funding rounds, including Creandum, LeadX Capital Partners and Idinvest. This investment will be used to both extend the platform and accelerate expansion into new markets across Europe and North America.
In the UK, where it is estimated that 26% of all work is shift-based, Planday is growing its user base at over 250% annually. This investment will enable Planday to establish a UK-based technology development hub, as well as to grow sales and customer support teams from its London office. Over the last year alone, Planday has quadrupled its UK employee base and is positioned to become the company's most significant hub.
