learn-bookGSV Capital has led a $16m Series A financing round for personal learning technology business Declara.

Data Collective, Founders Fund and Catamount Ventures also backed the round, which Declara said would be used to scale its operations globally and build out its team.

“Today’s highly effective organizations enable individuals to continuously replenish what they know.

“Declara delivers an enterprise platform that fosters individualized learning, empowered by big data, accelerating innovation and enabling collaboration.”
