WorkBuzz, a Milton Keynes, England-based fast-growing employee engagement platform, raised a £1.5 million investment for international expansion and the creation of 15 new jobs.
The funding comes from its existing backers Mercia and Foresight, both of which invested via the Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF), alongside funding from private investors.
The latest funding will enable WorkBuzz to expand its sales and marketing team and ‘internationalize’ the platform, by adding new features and languages in preparation for further expansion, having already attracted a range of new clients in Australia.
The company is planning a Series A fundraising in 2023.
