BibliU, the leading provider of digital learning platforms for higher education institutions, today announced a new £4.7M ($5.5M) investment to continue its expansion across the UK and US.

The company has raised the second and third tranches of Series B funding, following an initial £12M ($15M) investment in June 2022. The investment will enable BibliU to expand its services across the US and UK markets, develop new products, secure additional publisher partnerships and invest further in sales and marketing, stimulating growth.

This new injection of funds has been delivered by both current and new private investors including Sparkmind, Stonehage Fleming, Crowdcube Private Angels, Wealth Club, OIC, and Oxin.
