Investors include Bessemer Venture Partners, Cowboy Ventures, D1 Capital Partners, Emerson Collective, General Catalyst, GSV, Harrison Metal, ICONIQ, Next Play Capital, Redpoint Ventures, and Salesforce Ventures.

Founded in 2015, Guild partners with employers — including The Walt Disney Company, Chipotle, and Discover Financial Services — to connect their workforce with upskilling opportunities.

It partners with universities, bootcamps and non-traditional learning providers teaching skills like Salesforce Administration to provide programs available to workers, ranging from entry-level English-language courses and college prep to full degrees and advanced digital certificates in programs like cybersecurity, data analytics and digital marketing.

This capital will be used to fuel Guild's growth, doubling the size of product and engineering team, and also investing further in its payments and technology platform.
