The global EdTech market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 16.5% from 2022 to 2030, reaching a value of $404 billion by 2025, reflecting a growing interest in new technologies and online education. With the year 2030 coinciding with the European Union’s Climate Target Plan and the United Nations’ Agenda for Sustainable Development, the demand for talent equipped with the specialist knowledge and green skills required to meet global development and sustainability goals is accelerating, yet LinkedIn’s Global Green Skills Report (2022) suggests that only 13% of the workforce currently possess these essential skills. Tomorrow University aims to harness the power of technology as a catalyst for transformative change in the world of education. Dr. Thomas Funke, co-founder and President of Tomorrow University, declares, “Now is the time to capitalize on the exponential growth of the EdTech market and unleash its potential in driving the radical transformation our society urgently craves.”

EduCapital, renowned for its expertise in the EdTech sector, is now an active supporter of Tomorrow University mission: “We are honored to lead the investment in Tomorrow University,” shared Marie Geneste, Investment Director of EduCapital. “Their purpose-driven approach to education aligns seamlessly with our vision of creating a better world through innovative education. Together, we aim to redefine education, fostering the growth of future leaders.”

Tomorrow University’s latest funding round was also supported by angel investors Nikolaus D. Bayer, Lin Deutschmann, Thomas Maidorfer, and Verena Pausder, as well as Mario Barosevcic and Jan Lynn-Matern from Emerge Education.
