Mobile-based sustainability Masters start-up receives €3.4m funding round

Virtual learning platform Tomorrow’s Education plans to use the investment to fund their expansion into HE in the metaverse

An edtech start-up that allows students to gain a Masters degree entirely remotely has received a funding round of €3.4m to fuel their development. 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 to give people from anywhere in the world access to gain the sustainability, entrepreneurship and technology qualification, which is double-accredited in Europe and the US. 

Other investors of the funding round include the leading European education fund Emerge Education and angel investors Verena Pausder, Celine Flores Willers, and Kai Roemmelt. 

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 to 15 minute long lessons are designed for students to learn while simultaneously making an impact in their personal ventures and careers – Christian Rebernik, co-founder of Tomorrow’s Education 

Cédric Cops, Investment Lead Mediahuis Ventures, commented: “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 start-ups 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.” 

Tomorrow’s Education has been 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, the Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences, which is even opening its own metaverse campus. 

The university plans to expand its offering to include three distinct Bachelor’s degree programs: 

  • B.A. in Responsible Entrepreneurship 
  • 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.
