Orbis Education, an Indianapolis, Indiana-based developer of nursing education solutions, completed its $8m Series B financing.
The round was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners of Menlo Park, California.
Led by an experienced team of education and healthcare veterans, Orbis Education works with colleges and universities to develop online nursing programs, recruit new qualified students, and manage the delivery of these programs.
The new funds will allow the company to broadly expand its hybrid online nursing education programs.
Commenting on the round, Daniel J. Briggs, Chief Executive Officer of Orbis, said: “This new infusion of capital by Lightspeed will allow Orbis Education to broadly deliver one-stop educational services to healthcare organizations and universities looking to recruit and graduate more qualified nurses, more quickly”.
