Mediahuis Ventures is leading a €3.4 million funding round in Germany’s Tomorrow’s Education, the start-up behind the remote-first university Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences. Other investors include leading UK education fund Emerge Education and angel investors such as Verena Pausder, Celine Flores Willers and Kai Roemmelt.
Tomorrow’s Education is an EdTech start-up founded in 2020 with the mission of educating tomorrow’s changemakers to become conscious entrepreneurs, capable of creating the technological solutions necessary for a more sustainable future. The online Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences offers them a unique, flexible and globally accessible learning experience that starts from a mobile-first application. The short learning modules of about 7-15 minutes are designed in such a way that students can learn and immediately apply the knowledge they have gained.
Tomorrow’s Education has partnered with the WU Executive Academy since 2021 whose Executive MBA program is ranked #34 among business schools globally. They jointly offer a Professional Master Degree program in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, and Technology which is double-accredited in Europe and the US. The intention is to complement this offering in the short term with three accredited bachelor’s programmes: a BA in Responsible Entrepreneurship, a BA in Sustainable Product Management and a BSc in Artificial Intelligence & Sustainable Technologies.
Cédric Cops, Investment Lead Mediahuis Ventures states: “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 start-ups 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.”
