It has been a very bumpy year with this COVID-19 pandemic. Many industries and individuals were severely affected, but when there is a crisis there are also opportunities.
We broadened our horizons and embraced these opportunities. At the beginning of 2020, we closed 3 million euro funding to accelerate our online adult & corporate education growth. Within a couple of months, we managed to completely transform our courses into online & on-demand learning formats.
In 2020, we launched 7 live online courses:
And, of course, we are especially proud of our Growth for Good Strategy Course specially designed for NGO and social enterprises.
On the corporate education side, we have extended our digital learning partnerships with such companies as Phillips, Ahold and Zurich Insurance Group to help them with digital capabilities building around customer centricity, growth mindset and data visualisation using our unique approach to learning.
We have seen the unprecedented success of the new formats among our customers and learners, and to accelerate this growth even further, we have secured extra 2 million euros funding from Rinkelberg Investment Firm, resulting in a total investment of 5 million euros in 2020.
We will continue to invest in our new products that reflect the most in-demand digital skills & capabilities. In 2021, there will be more courses, more tools and more international expansion, as this is only the beginning of our transformational learning journey.
Stay tuned for more!
