SkillSeeder was founded by 4 entrepreneurs, David Ritchie, Simon Rigden, Kerry Cowan and James Ritchie, after being selected for the CivTech 5 cohort in 2020. Since then we have received further funding from the Scottish Government to develop and advance our solution.
SkillSeeder was officially launched in the spring of 2021 and the business has gone from strength to strength. 1,500 courses are now listed on the platform from both professional and informal skill sharers. Through a targeted marketing campaign, SkillSeeder is fast becoming a recognised name for training. If you are interested in investing in our success story, or would like to find out more about our projected growth and opportunity, please get in touch.
