Edtech startup raises over $1m to help children to engage with STEAM subjects
A London-based edtech startup has raised over $1m in crowdfunding and government backing.
Tech Will Save Us has secured investment from hundreds of private investors on crowdfunding platform Seedrs as well as the UK Government’s Future Fund.
Founded in 2012 by husband and wife team Bethany Koby and Daniel Hirschmann, Tech Will Save Us specialises in educational play, with a digital platform as well as physical toys to encourage learning in science, technology, engineering, art and maths (STEAM).
The firm aims to use the funding to accelerate its growth, capitalising on the opportunities presented by homeschooling during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Bethany Koby, co-founder and CEO at Tech Will Save Us, commented: “We’d very much like to thank all of our new investors for their support, as well as everyone who has assisted with our application to Future Fund.
“Education has forever been changed by the lockdown and we are hugely excited to be accelerating our plans for home learning clubs as parents increasingly look for ways to inspire learning and prepare their kids for the future.”
