Remote-first challenger university with a metaverse campus helps learners to build the 21st-century skills needed to create a more sustainable future
EdTech startup Tomorrow’s Education is pleased to announce a funding round of 3.4 million € to fuel the development of future innovators and leaders. The round is led by Mediahuis Ventures, the venture capital firm of European media group Mediahuis.
Tomorrow’s Education, founded by serial entrepreneur Christian Rebernik and education expert Dr Thomas Funke has created a mobile-first, personalised challenge-based learning system that enables people from anywhere in the world to gain a Professional Master’s degree in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Technology which is double-accredited in Europe and the US.
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 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.”
Other investors include the leading European Education Fund Emerge Education and angel investors Verena Pausder, Celine Flores Willers, and Kai Roemmelt.
Tomorrow’s Education has partnered with the WU Executive Academy since 2021 whose Executive MBA program is ranked #34 among business schools globally and is currently in the process of acquiring accreditation for its own university – Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences.
Future plans entail expanding the offering to include three distinct Bachelor’s degree programs:
- B.A. in Responsible Entrepreneurship
- B.A.in Sustainable Product Management
- B.Sc in Artificial Intelligence & Sustainable Technologies
Accessible via a mobile app, students from across the globe can embark on a flexible learning experience based on practical real-world challenges. The challenges are designed by impact-driven industry leaders from top companies such as Tier Mobility, Wandelbots, and Share.
“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, bite-sized 7 to15 minute long lessons are designed for students to learn while simultaneously making an impact in their personal ventures and careers,” says Christian Rebernik, co-founder of Tomorrow’s Education.
“The challenge-based, remote-first learning method ensures that our students gain practical knowledge and real-world experience throughout their studies,” he adds.
Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences has a metaverse which helps learners to build the 21st-century skills needed to create a more sustainable future, and interact with other students and academics.
Tomorrow’s Education is an EdTech startup founded in 2020 with the mission to accelerate the transition to a sustainable society by educating and empowering the change makers of tomorrow.
