Utrecht-based SchoolTalent, a fast-growing edtech platform, announced that it has raised €850K in a fresh round of growth funding.
This capital comes on top of the company’s previously raised €500K funding in the summer of 2021.
Bijles Aan Huis in the Netherlands and Lernigo in Germany are the names used by the company.
SchoolTalent claims that the funds will be used among other things to enhance the didactic quality of its platform for students and tutors. Additionally, the capital will go towards further expansion in Germany and the Netherlands.
Bijles Huis is also planning to set up a tutoring program for children of underprivileged families. It is hoped that tutoring services will be available to a total of 500,000 students each year by 2024.
SchoolTalent was established in 2018 by Florian Zondbergen. The company aims to make tutoring more affordable. The mission of SchoolTalent is to provide as many students as possible with ‘high-quality’ one-on-one tutoring.
Using artificial intelligence, the company’s platform makes it easier to find the right (screened) tutor.
Once student and tutor are found, the platform supports them both with didactic support, practice material, and other tools.
SchoolTalent offered its online tutoring platform to schools free of charge during the pandemic so that they could make the transition to online teaching more quickly.
