E-Learning Solutions Provider HighTechCampus Gets $4 Million In Second Round Funding From Texas-Based Tobat Capital

March 13, 2001

DALLAS — HighTechCampus, a premier e-learning solutions provider, today announced it has secured a second round of funding with a $4 million infusion from Tobat Capital.

“This second round of funding — at a time when venture capitalists are requiring a proven path to profitability before investing — is an extreme vote of confidence for our business model,” said Fulton Collins, HighTechCampus president and chief operating officer. “Industry analysts project that our space will be enormous, and now HighTechCampus has hit its ‘second wind,’ in preparation for the long run.”

Dallas based Tobat Capital is an early stage venture capital firm focused on the insurance and financial services sector.

Tobat Capital General Partner, Scott Brock said, “After a thorough analysis, we found a natural synergy between the HighTechCampus mission, and our area of expertise. HighTechCampus offers corporations the ability to access high quality risk management content via scalable and reliable technology. We feel this offering is of great value to both insurance companies and end-users.”

HighTechCampus’ curriculum is designed to train large corporations in risk management and litigation avoidance. The HighTechCampus Web site serves as a distribution system for more than 60 professional development and risk management courses. The Internet delivery system provides expeditious, affordable delivery and helps clients curtail travel budgets associated with more traditional training.

Courses at the site cover topics most requested by businesses — to ensure better job performance and to reduce risk in an increasingly litigious business climate. The company will continually augment its course offering, and expects to double the number of titles in this quarter.

Training courses at the site include business-critical topics such as “Managing Anger At Work” and “Sexual Harassment In The Workplace.” The site also offers business skills courses including “Personal Leadership Power” and various desktop applications. In addition, the combination of Internet accessibility and global business expansion led to HighTechCampus’ recent introduction of one of the first Spanish translations of an e-learning course, now available for bilingual workforces. (A complete list of courses is available at www.hightechcampus.com.)

Each e-learning course is designed using an accelerated learning approach to provide concepts, knowledge, skills and techniques that can improve the performance, motivation and competency of individuals participating in the training program.
