Sibme Raises Over $730K in Non-Dilutive Funding to Develop Growing Company


Sibme provides educational resources to schools, created by teachers for teachers. The Texas-based company believes that teachers learn best when they self-reflect and collaborate with others, so their web and mobile professional learning SaaS platform presents this opportunity.

The rapidly growing company has secured over $730K in its 3rd round of non-dilutive financing with Lighter Capital. The growth capital will be used to further develop its technology platform to provide a best-in-class experience for online and onsite learning experiences for educators. Technology enhancements will include improved instructional and professional learning, custom development for large enterprise customers, and refined 6-week coaching cycles.

“Sibme is thrilled to work with Lighter Capital to help fuel our continued growth. This additional investment is allowing us to accelerate our presence in schools around the world as we pursue our mission of changing the way people learn at work.”  – Dave Wakefield, Founder and CEO

Founded in 2013, Sibme offers a secure and flexible software platform for unifying teams, a virtual and one-on-one coaching experience, and cohorts to enhance your team. Emphasizing a personalized experience to offer a “human” approach to technology and coaching, Sibme represents a continued partner in success and connects with clients at least three times per year after implementation to discuss data, evaluate the program, and make recommendations for any necessary adjustments.
