GoStudent is founded 💡

Felix Ohswald (CEO) and Gregor Müller (COO) found GoStudent. The first idea: A free-to-use homework-chat via WhatsApp, designed to make the lives of all students easier! After the first Business Angel invested, the founders developed their own app that included a homework chat.


GoStudent has over 100,000 users 💯

The homework chat app establishes a solid user base. GoStudent receives a €500k investment. The first student asks for a private online tutoring session and is willing to pay for it.


Changing the game: from students to parents 👨‍👩‍👦

With a user base of +500,000 students, the company changes its approach and decides to target parents. GoStudent opens its first office in the basement of a sailing school and receives a seed fund of €1.4m. Paid tutoring sessions are now offered online, via video.


GoStudent finds its business model and focuses on sustainable learning 🔥

GoStudent introduces paid memberships, lasting between 6 and 24 months. The company relocates from its basement office to a modern complex in Vienna's 2nd district and establishes key structures and processes, paving the way for rapid growth.


GoStudent receives €13,3m € Investment and grows rapidly! 🚀

The team quadruples to more than 160 employees. GoStudent expands beyond the DACH region, offering its services in France and Spain, and opening its first international office in Lyon. Left Lane Capital and DN Capital invest €13.3m, allowing for rapid growth. By December, GoStudent is booking more than 150,000 tutoring sessions each month.


GoStudent becomes a unicorn 🦄 and conquers the world 🌍

GoStudent strengthens its position in Europe and expands to the UK and Ireland, Italy, Greece, Turkey, the Netherlands and Russia. The company secures further investment, closing a €70m Series B funding round in March 2021 and it opens offices in Dusseldorf, Berlin, Madrid, London, Milan, Athens, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Moscow & Sofia. In June, GoStudent raises a Series C round of €205m and reaches a €1.4bn valuation, securing its status as an EdTech unicorn. In the third quarter, GoStudent expands to Canada, Mexico, Chile & Colombia and opens its first office outside of Europe in Mexico City. With a team of +1,300 employees and 14,000 tutors, GoStudent books around 1.5m tutoring sessions per month.


GoStudent receives €300 million investment & conquers the world 🌍

Just seven months after its Series C investment, GoStudent raises a Series D round of €300 million and more than doubles its company valuation to €3 billion. In the first quarter of 2022 GoStudent acquires Seneca Learning and TusMedia. With a team of +1,600 employees and +23,000 self-employed tutors, GoStudent books more than 1.5 million tutoring sessions per month.
