The investment was led by Questa Capital, a healthcare venture growth equity firm that actively invests in healthcare and life sciences software.

This investment by Questa Capital validates the large market opportunity to transform critical learning experiences and sales enablement approaches in the life sciences industry. The company will use the proceeds of the investment to accelerate the growth and scale of ACTO and explore potential business and partnership opportunities.

“The rapid growth of our customer community demonstrates the industry’s interest and hunger for a new way of delivering commercial learning and development. Trends driving this shift include the increase in clinical data and the demand for flexible access to information in the flow of work. We are happy to meet these needs with the only omnichannel learning platform for the life sciences industry,” says Parth Khanna, CEO of ACTO. He added, “We are thrilled to have Questa Capital join us on this journey and look forward to delighting our customers with innovative solutions, such as our recently announced conversational assistant LAICA™, to make commercial learning in Life Sciences easier and more engaging.”

ACTO is disrupting the learning experience and sales enablement landscape in life sciences, which is primed for a new, modern and user-accessible solution to training and enabling learners in pharma. This round of funding allows ACTO to expand and enhance capabilities to accelerate its technology as the #1 life sciences-focused learning enablement platform. 

“At Questa, we are passionate about investing in innovative and well-positioned companies that empower the healthcare and life sciences industries to improve patient outcomes. We are excited to partner with Parth and the outstanding management team at ACTO to invest in the company’s strategic growth plan. With experienced leadership and cutting-edge SaaS technology, ACTO is serving a market ripe for a better approach,” says Ryan Drant, Founder and Managing Partner at Questa Capital, who was recently recognized as a top healthcare investor of 2022 by GrowthCap Advisory2.
