Irish edtech company Logicearth plans "significant growth" in Ireland and to create a base in the US after it was acquired by the Creative Engagement Group last month.
Logicearth co-founder Peter Carlin also said the company, which provides online training programmes for corporates, has seen a huge spike in demand for its services since the Covid-19 pandemic. "We are busier than we have ever been, helping companies deliver training online to their staff who are working from home at the current time.
"They are finding that they had to quickly replace classroom delivery of training with online delivery which is what we excel at."
The Dublin and Belfast-based company, Logicearth was founded by Carlin and Paul McKay in 2009, and has 25 staff working at its bases in Dublin and Belfast. The acquisition was announced on April 8.
"We are predicting significant growth in the next three years and, in the short term, there will be several new jobs within the next 18 months on the island of Ireland," he said.
Carlin is a former board member of industry-led technology centre the Learnovate Centre at Trinity, which is funded by Enterprise Ireland and located at Trinity College.
