EdTechInvestments

Once the new EdTech platform, which helps start-up entrepreneurs turn their passion into a business through coaching, community and content, was launched today with initial funding of £ 2.5 million.

The initial funding round was co-sponsored with BrightEye VC, a leading venture capital firm known in EdTech, and Outward VC, a well-known venture capital firm with a focus on early-stage FinTech startups in the UK and Europe.

Flint Capital and well-known angel investors, including Joshua Vole, Mindstone CEO and co-founder of SuperAwesome, also participated in the funding round.

Investments will focus on team expansion, accelerating innovation and expanding growth.

Previously, Oneday provided £ 750,000 in pre-funding to create an alternative education system for half of society who were not born for a corporate career and did not dream of becoming an entrepreneur.

According to a recent survey, almost a third of workers in the UK are considering changing jobs in 2022. In 2021, “how to start a business” was sought for more than “how to get a job”.

Oneday works by giving start-up entrepreneurs ready-to-start ideas and combining them with successful CEOs as teachers, a community of fellow founders, and all the content and tools needed to start and fund their business. Its co-founders are Ranbir Arora and Taras Polishchuk, both formerly of Sweatcoin, a health and fitness app of FinTech, and now the CEO and CEO of Oneday respectively.

Ranbir Arora, CEO and co-founder of Oneday, said: “Today, all the careers we aspire to are in the economy of passion; when people sit in their booths in big corporations, they say, ‘One day I’m going to launch my own makeup line, one day I’m going to launch my own music label, one day I’m going to become a YouTuber’.

“For a corporate career, we have a massive system of higher education that helps people get that career. But there is nothing that helps people make these careers in the economy they dream of. That’s why we created Oneday to help everyone create the life and career they love. ”

Membership at Oneday is a fraction of the price of the university, and it connects entrepreneurs with the experience, networking and tools to start the business of their dreams. With more than 1,500 teachers – business founders, CEOs, executives, marketing directors, product managers and more – he already has several success stories, including Jake Cassan, who founded FinTech Monet.

Casan connected 7,000 beta users and raised £ 550,000 with the help of his teacher Oneday.

“The Oneday community has changed lives. I had a great experience working with my teacher James, ”he said. “His advice was not only extremely effective for my business, but also helped me close the funding round before settling.”
