The founders of courseticket.com proudly announced a first closing of a new funding round with a well-known celebrity in German speaking countries. Most people know Christian Clerici as a journalist, speaker, extreme sports athlete, hot-rod enthusiast and some do know him as a Business Angel. “Christian is active as an Angel since around 2 years and has digged himself into his role, as a supporter, connector, motivator – talking to him about changing the world together makes him smile – I really think being an Angel is a passion for him.” Alexander Schmid (CEO, courseticket.com).
courseticket.com offers a SaaS solution for vendors in the education industry and a transparent marketplace for potential clients, who look for the right training and would like to compare prices and quality. Courseticket is the leading marketplace for education and training in Austria, with more than 250,000 users visiting the platform monthly, a two digit-growth rate and more than 10,000 active deals offered at the marketplace. The company aims to go international within the next two years.
Christian Clerici underlines his decision to support coureticket, with a brief comment: “The market for this kind of business is breath taking, with more than EUR 45 billion only in Germany, EUR 85 billion in UK and over 1,3 trillion in the US. On the other hand it is very fragmented, has some entry barriers and is very competitive. Courseticket is not my first tech investment, therefore I know we have some challenging and exiting years coming up! I am looking forward to change the world of education with this ambitions team!”
The investment took place shortly after, courseticket was awarded to be one of the most promising startups in London, at a pitch-event of the Austrian Trade Commission, where UK based Investors spend an inspiring evening with more than twenty startups of Austria.
