TC readers have had the pleasure of following Nelson Sivalingam's entrepreneurial journey over the last few years and those in Toronto had the pleasure of hearing him deliver a keynote speech at our Global Tamil Connections event in 2018.
Nelson has reached another incredible milestone by raising $3M in pre series A funding for his company HowNow, a workforce learning platform.
“Based on self-review, peer-review and real-time job market data we build the user’s skill profile as they onboard the platform,” explains HowNow co-founder and CEO Nelson Sivalingam. “Once in HowNow, they see learning recommendations based on assigned learning pathways, their role, skill requirements and internal benchmarks. This content is brought together from a variety of their internal sources (G Drive, Sharepoint, CRM, etc.), external sources (content libraries, blogs, podcasts, etc.) and the autonomously organised knowledge shared by their peers directly on HowNow.”
