Aliter Capital invests in Skill Pill

Aliter Capital has completed an investment in Skill Pill, a digital micro-learning specialist, which produces high-quality video, animation, and gamified eLearning content with a particular strength in business performance support, leadership, management, sales and personal effectiveness training. Skill Pill has a library of 500 modules and serves over one million learners in over 168 countries with customers such as the BBC, Fujitsu, John Lewis/Waitrose, Save the Children, and the NHS. Its learning is based on globally recognised methodologies published by leading organisations such as Pearson and the Financial Times.

Skill Pill’s micro-learning content and blue-chip customer base is highly complementary to Aliter’s existing digital learning group, which includes Sponge and Bolt, brought together by Aliter in 2019 with the vision of creating a major new force in the growing learning technologies market. Together as one group, Sponge and Bolt have evolved under Aliter’s direction and are continuing to perform exceptionally well against a difficult economic backdrop.

Gerry Griffin, Founder and Managing Director of Skill Pill, says: “We are excited at the prospect of working with Aliter and becoming part of a group with Sponge, allowing us direct access to award-winning bespoke content and expanding Skill Pill’s range further to create a dominant offer in quality, international digital learning.”

Billy Allan, Chairman of Sponge and Managing Partner of Aliter, says: “We are very pleased with the progress that has been made on the strategic plan for our existing group. The addition of Skill Pill will significantly add to the subscription-based ‘off-the-shelf’ content sales and further strengthen our customer base, including new blue- chip corporate and channel partner relationships.”

Founded by Gerry Griffin in 2015, Skill Pill focuses on corporate learning and business skills through advanced micro-learning content with an adaptive algorithm technology so each module has a 14 point ‘fingerprint’ allowing the system to match the pattern of the learner and along with recommendations. Its learning library of 500 modules, available in 20-plus languages, specialises in business performance support: leadership, management, sales and personal effectiveness. Skill Pill has established over 100 high profile loyal customers over the years through their growing content and advanced learning technology.
