Cyber training platform CAPSLOCK secures funding

CAPSLOCK, a bootcamp for cybersecurity training, has collected £1m in pre-seed funding.

The round was closed through tranches and received investments from Ufi VocTech Trust, GC Angels, the British Government. Capital was also supplied by a group of nine angel investors.

CAPSLOCK was founded by Dr. Andrea Cullen, Jonathan Slater, and Lorna Armitage after they noticed a gap in education for digital skills. The team set out to build a platform the train UK staff on cyberthreats and how to avoid them.

Ufi VocTech Trust investment manager Alex Bishop said, “At Ufi, we continue to be enthused by the unique learner proposition at CAPSLOCK, enabling learners to access skills needed for work in high demand sectors in the UK, such as Cyber Security, whilst removing the upfront financial barriers to training, through their innovative Income Share Agreement model.

“The evidence of impact demonstrated through the career transformations of their learners to date has been striking, with salary levels increasing post enrolment across the cohort. We are excited to support the business moving forward as they scale their bootcamp model to even more learners.”
