We are grateful to have the support of EduCapital as we continue to revolutionize the education landscape. This investment will empower us to accelerate our mission of providing exceptional learning experiences and shaping the entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs of tomorrow,” said Christian Rebernik, Founder & CEO of Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences.

The new capital is intended to support the growth of Tomorrow University. This includes the expansion of the educational offer, the further development of the technological infrastructure, and the expansion of the operational business. In this way, the neo-university wants to meet the increasing demand for innovative, future-oriented education.

High growth in EdTech

According to Tomorrow University, the global EdTech market will develop at a compound annual growth rate of 16.5% from 2022 to 2030 and reach a value of $404 billion by 2025. As 2030 coincides with the EU’s climate target plan and the United Nations’ sustainable development agenda, there is an increasing demand for talent with specific expertise. However, only 13% of the workforce currently have these essential skills.

“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,” said Thomas Funke, co-founder and president of Neo-University.
