Working Capital and Norrsken back global supply-chain training startup



ImpactAlpha, April 30 – Global supply chains are long, complicated and hard to monitor. Companies often struggle to be sure their suppliers treat workers well and comply with international and local laws. Founded in 2013, Stockholm-based QuizRR uses short movies followed by questions to train managers and workers in workplace rights, responsibilities, wage management and other issues.

  • Labor lens… Humanity United, part of the Omidyar Group, recently launched the $23 million Working Capital fund to back early-stage companies fighting human trafficking and other abusive practices in corporate supply chains around the world.
  • Expansion capital… QuizRR raised $1.3 million in a round led by Working Capital and Norrsken’s Founders Fund to expand to new countries and improve its products.
  • Training millions… So far it has worked with 40 international brands and trained 45,000 factory workers in China, Bangladesh and Mauritius. It plans to train 2 million workers by 2020.
