LearnUpon provides unrivalled, 24/7 customer support. Every customer is appointed a Customer Success Manager to help them implement the platform and ensure they meet their unique learning goals.

Advice for policymakers

The introduction of GDPR significantly increased compliance and red tape. LearnUpon were lucky as they had always prioritised data protection and they had grown to a certain scale to handle the additional burden of implementing GDPR (different legals etc.). However, for startups, there is no doubt that this regulatory requirement is a hurdle and means more funding will likely be required at the very beginning of their journey.
