With the backing of LRM, the Concentra Media Group, existing shareholders, and participation from management, along with support from major banks, including BNP Paribas Fortis, MobieTrain is well-positioned to scale its sales and marketing efforts.

MobieTrain’s microlearning platform

MobieTrain’s microlearning platform, characterized by personalized and dynamic learning paths, has gained traction in various sectors. While already successful in the retail industry, MobieTrain is set to explore opportunities in hospitality and healthcare. Key partners such as Beekeeper, SAP, Speakap, and Spencer play a pivotal role in MobieTrain’s expansion into diverse sectors.

Co-founder Mireille van Hemert-Schelling emphasized MobieTrain’s commitment to addressing evolving business needs, stating
