How Educapital Is Using Education To Prepare For The Future Of Work
The venture capital firm Educapital has revealed that it is seeking $ 160 million in funding to help drive emerging companies and educational technology companies (edtech) focused on future of work.
The company has recently raised $ 105 million in financing and is already thinking about its next step.
“We started the company four years ago. We were the first European edtech fund, “said Marie-Christine Levet, co-founder of Educapital.” In four years, we have invested in 20 companies, most in Europe. We have a wide range of investment since childhood to vocational training.
Edtech uses software, hardware, and other technologies to help optimize the learning experience and ensure that students are prepared to participate in a modern workforce.
Educapital’s first fund brought 360Learning, LiveMentor and several others to its portfolio.
With its second financing, the company expects to invest in 20 additional companies. So far, three companies have raised money for Educapital’s second funding, including Chance, Fourth Rev and Invivox.
“It simply came to our notice then. It’s harder than ever to draw a line between work, school and vocational training, “said Levet.
