Masterplan is proud to announce a new investment from, and long-term partnership with, Riverside Acceleration Capital (RAC). A leader in workplace learning, Masterplan is known for providing a cutting-edge Learning Engagement Platform designed to prepare employees for the challenges of the future.

Riverside Acceleration Capital's extensive experience and commitment to the software sector, with investments in 65+ B2B companies, makes this partnership a significant milestone for Masterplan.

Masterplan currently works with over 300 customers, from startups to large corporations like Volkswagen, Domino’s, Beiersdorf, DZ Bank, and the Otto Group. While the company’s 100+ employees are primarily based out of its Berlin and Düsseldorf offices, the platform is designed as a global solution with support for a multitude of languages. 

While workplace training can often feel like just a box that needs to be checked off, the Masterplan platform turns continuous education into an engaging, personalized, and rewarding experience.
