Innovative startup Tech Will Save Us smashes crowdfunding target within first day...

Within 24 hours of launching on Seedrs, the Edtech startup Tech Will Save Us, which provides hybrid online and offline learning experiences for kids, has reached its £200k crowdfunding target and is now continuing into overfunding. The venture-backed business, which has already helped 1.2m kids build and create with technology, is offering its community the chance to invest as it benefits from higher demand for home-learning during the lockdown.

Bethany Kody“With 1.5bn 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,” comments Bethany Koby, Cofounder and CEO at Tech Will Save Us. “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.”

Tech Will Save Us’ play-led home learning system is designed to encourage creativity while sparking an interest in science, technology, engineering, art and maths (STEAM). It includes a digital platform (featuring hours of video content, interactive manuals, projects and coding challenges), physical product experiences and a subscriptions service.

Since its founding in 2012 (we actually featured Tech Will Save Us that year!) the company now has customers across 97 countries.

Tech Will Save Us made the decision to focus on digital sales last year which positioned them well for the Covid-19 pandemic and it has seen sales across digital channels rise 110% post lockdown.

We look forward to seeing where this fab EdTech startup goes from here!
