Edtech startup smashes six-figure crowdfunding target in 24 hours

An edtech startup which aims to provide hybrid online and offline learning for children has reached its six-figure crowdfunding target within 24 hours of launching.

Tech Will Save Us has hit its £200k funding target on investment platform Seedrs in just one day after launching its crowdfunding campaign.

Founded in 2012 by husband and wife team Bethany Koby and Daniel Hirschmann, Tech Will Save Us specialises in play-led home learning, designed to encourage creativity while sparking an interest in science, technology, engineering, art and maths.

Backed by edtech-focused BrightEye Ventures and Initial Capital, the startup has worked with the likes of Disney, Google, Code Club, The Prince’s Trust and the BBC on educational programmes and toys.

Bethany Koby, co-founder and CEO at Tech Will Save Us, commented: “With 1.5 billion kids out of school around the world, parents need things that are both entertaining and educational. We’ve seen sales more than double amid a massive uplift in awareness and demand for home-learning.

“We decided that this was the right time to run a crowdfunding campaign and offer our passionate community a chance to own part of the business.

“We are delighted to have reached our target so quickly.”
