Skilltype, a New Orleans-based end-to-end digital platform for organizing library talent, has raised a $1.1 million seed round led by The Pearl Fund and Revelry Venture Partners. The Pearl Fund considers Skilltype the “LinkedIn for skills,” as the startup offers tools for the library ecosystem to modernize talent management workflows.
Skilltype was founded just over three years ago by enterprise software executive Tony Zanders and is currently headquartered out of 4.0 Schools in the city’s innovation corridor.
“Skilltype exists to rethink our professional journey around what’s in our control: Professional development,” shared the company. “Professional development has evolved from the occasional, physical and credential into the perpetual, digital, and experiential. We are building a new experience that not only embraces this shift, but advances it in preparation for the future of work.”
