EQT backs in-demand AI learning platform

Ted Persson, EQ Ventures

EQT Ventures recently closed a USD18 million series-A round into Stockholm-based AI-focused online learning platform Sana Labs, which is used by Fortune Global 2000 companies for up-skilling and re-skilling global workforces, and has been in high demand when it comes to educating healthcare and other key workers during the pandemic.

Private Equity Wire sat down with Ted Persson, partner at EQT Ventures, to discuss the fact that around 1.3 billion adults will face a ‘skills mismatch’ for the jobs needed in the future, how the online learning trend will pan out in the next few years and the role of the private sector in driving this trend.
