Nexthink raises $85M to show screen and strengthen ‘worker

As companies compete for skill, a startup that has built a platform to assist be sure that the skill — as soon because it’s working for you — doesn’t receive bogged down by IT frustration, has raised a critical round of funding. Lausanne, Switzerland-based entirely Nexthink has nailed down $eighty five million in funding led by Index Ventures (which has a rude in Geneva), with participation moreover from Highland Europe, Forestay Capital, Galéo Capital and TOP Funds and Olivier Pomel (co-founder and CEO of Datadog).
