WhiteHat has raised a $4m Seed round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, a Silicon Valley-based investor.

The startup’s round also drew support from Village Global, ShopTalk and Money 20/20 founder Anil Aggarwal, and British tech entrepreneur Wendy Tan White.

Launched in 2016, WhiteHat is looking to challenge the preconceived idea that university is the only path that leads to successful careers.

In order to fulfil their mission, the company matches non-graduate talent with apprenticeships across a wide range of sectors – including tech, professional services, finance and retail.

WhiteHat is currently working with Google, Facebook, WeWork, Salesforce, Warner Bros and Burberry.

"We’re changing the way young people from all backgrounds are able to access the best careers and are partnering with Lightspeed to scale this global vision for the future of work," said Euan Blair co-founder.
