Sydney startup WithYouWithMe – which offers a platform for workers to reskill and be placed in high-demand jobs – has raised $5 million in a recent funding round.

WithYouWithMe launched in 2016 in response to high unemployment rates among Australian veterans. The startup continues to provide a platform to help returning soldiers transition to civilian technology and cyber security roles, but at the beginning of this year, the startup expanded its focus to help large firms reskill employees and prepare them for hard to fill internal roles.

“It’s been a massive few years for the business and we’re not slowing down,” WithYouWithMe co-founder Luke Rix said.

The latest funding boost – the oversubscribed round led by Perennial Value Management and Alium Capital Management – will be used to “accelerate hiring and scale operations at home and abroad” the start-up said.

The second half of this year will also be a period of “hypergrowth” in the company’s software development effort.
