Tomorrow’s Education, which is viewed as a remote-first challenger university and on a mission to help learners build skills they require to create a more suitable future has reportedly scored €3.4 million that will help fuel its mission in this trajectory. However, the latest funding round was led by Mediahuis Ventures.
The current funding round also saw the participation of other investors that include the leading European Education Fund Emerge Education coupled with angel investors Celine Flores, Verena Pausder, and Kai Roemmelt.
Founded in 2020, the young startup is understood as one that has created a mobile-first, personalized challenge-based learning system is designed to enable people from all over the world to gain a Professional Master’s degree in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, and Technology which is duo accredited in the U.S. and Europe.
In view of this, ‘Christian Rebernik’, co-founder of the subject startup explained: “We have developed a cutting-edge learning platform that offers a revolutionary approach to education. We believe in learning by doing rather than simply taking offline learning to an online platform. Our short, bit-sized 7 to 15 minute long lessons are designed for students to learn while simultaneously making an impact in their personal ventures and careers. The challenge-based, remote-first learning method ensures that our students gain practical knowledge and real-world experience throughout their studies”.
Going forward, it’s worth noting that the aim is to harness the power of online education in a bid to accelerate the transition to a sustainable society by educating and powering the change-makers of tomorrow. The subject startup – Tomorrow’s Education evolved with the belief that an entrepreneurial mindset will pave way for leaders to create the technological solutions required for a more sustainable future.
However, with the WU Executive Academy partnership in place since 2021, the subject company is currently in the process of acquiring the accreditation for its own university – Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences. Moreover, there are plans to expand the current offerings to include three distinct Bachelor’s degree programs, namely: BA in Sustainable Product Management, BA in Responsible Entrepreneurship, BSc in Artificial Intelligence and Sustainable Technologies.
Since the app is accessible via a mobile platform, students from across the globe will be able to embark on a flexible learning experience that’s narrowed to practical real-world challenges. While the challenges are structured by impact-driven industry leaders from high-profile companies like Share, Tier Mobility, and Wandelbots.
Based on this, the Investment Lead Mediahuis Ventures ‘Cédric Cops’, stated: “The EdTech market not only offers attractive prospects and opportunities for growth, it also fits in with Mediahuis’ mission which is to provide independent news and information, thereby making a positive contribution to people and society. For this reason, we support high-growth, cutting-edge startups that are leveraging emerging technologies to re-imagine the way people learn and work. Tomorrow’s Education is a very promising player, engaging students in a new kind of metaverse learning experience. We believe in its revolutionary approach to education and see potential for continued growth”.
