London (UK), April 2022 - Go1, one of the world's largest corporate education content hubs, recently announced the acquisition of Coorpacademy, an innovative eLearning platform and content library with a multinational customer base. Coorpacademy has offices in France and Switzerland and will support Go1's growth plans for Europe, expanding its large corporate learning market and adding to its existing digital learning and education resource offerings.
This latest acquisition for Go1 follows its $200M funding round in July 2021. Further expansion in the US and Europe is a continued top focus, but Go1 also intends to reach other regions in the future.
"Go1's core purpose is to help organizations and learners access great content from thousands of content providers. The combination with Coorpacademy brings an exciting set of new content partners into the mix and ultimately helps us reach more skills and areas of interest for our customers," said Andrew Barnes, CEO and co-founder of Go1. “Coorpacademy is already well established in France and Switzerland, and we are excited about this geographic expansion."
This integration will focus on augmenting existing products and content libraries to ensure that a variety of users have content that fits the needs of their customers. There are around one million users of Coorpacademy's current offering.
"Go1's unique approach to learning and development through curated playlists makes this company and leadership team an ideal partner for Coorpacademy," said Jean-Marc Tassetto, Coorpacademy's Co-Founder and CEO. "Not only is this a great opportunity for our two companies to come together to make corporate education accessible to millions of learners, but it adds value for existing customers that are prioritizing and expanding their learning and development resources. We are looking forward to building the future of L&D with Go1."
Coorpacademy's co-founders Arnauld Mitre, Frederick Benichou, and Jean-Marc Tassetto will be joining the Go1 leadership team to continue to support company growth and oversee the day-to-day operations for Coorpacademy.
