Press release - September 20, 2022

 

Rise Up, the fast-growing European learning software solution, has named Jeremy Prince Managing Director. Alongside founders Arnaud and Guillaume Blachon, Prince completes the executive management team and will align global strategy, increase management efficiency and reinvigorate business in the French market.

 

British-born and French-raised, Prince has over 20 years of experience in leadership roles, including company management, international strategic development, M&A and IPO, at companies such as Index Multimedia, SeLoger, M6 Group and Mikros/Technicolor. His latest experience at SIGFOX, a French company specialized in the Internet of Things (IoT), as Chief Strategy Officer, then President of the US subsidiary and finally Group CEO, led him from Paris to Dallas and back again. 

 

 

Rise Up Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer Arnaud Blachon explains, “We continue to evolve to support our European expansion. Eight years ago, we were two brothers in the ESSEC incubator with three friends; now we are 100 people operating in six countries. As a third member of our management team, Jeremy will work closely with both myself and Guillaume to better manage our growth and our teams, align our global strategy and fortify our business in France."

 

Rise Up Co-Founder & Chief Technology & Product Officer Guillaume Blachon adds, “With his rich experience in leadership and strategy, Jeremy will help both Arnaud and myself improve management and operations, from business to technology to customer service. We welcome his contribution and already consider him part of our Rise Up family.” 

 

Managing Director Jeremy Prince states, “Rise Up has proven itself to be a great adventure. In eight years, the company has grown into a European leader in the Edtech, HRtech and learning industry, completing two rounds of investment funding. I’m glad to bring my management experience to this growing team, and I look forward to supporting Rise Up’s expansion, growth and success.” 

 

Prince graduated from Science Po with a specialization in Economy and Finance, and the University of Montpellier with a Masters in International Law.  He lives in Paris with his wife and two children. 

 

In May 2022, Rise Up raised €30 million in Series B financing, and the company is pursuing its expansion across Europe, bolstering its global and local teams. The company has doubled both its revenues and staff every year since its creation in 2014. Today, its learning technology platform, combining LMS, LXP, LRS, LCMS, mobile and multimodal services, serves over 450 customers and 1 million active learners in 60 countries, including Axa, Schneider Electric, Domino’s, NHS, RED, UGW Communication, SIKA and Settle Mint.
