Venture Capital for the education marketplace Courseticket.com! The Viennese Startup closed their second round of investment with 500.000 Euros. Business Angels are amongst others Peter Lehner, CEO of OnTec Software Solutions and TV host Christian Clerici. The Deal was structured and executed by Venionaire Capital. Courseticket is the leading marketplace for education in Austria, with more than 15.000 courses! One of the founders is our CEO Berthold Baurek-Karlic.
Managing to close half a million funding round is still unusual in Austria. Therefore, several media reported about the deal (in German): Werbeplanung mentions that Courseticket developed a “Marketplace-as-a-Service”-Solution for B2B. “Der Brutkasten” – an Austrian startup and innovation platform – points out the involvement of Christian Clerici, a well-known media personality in Austria and Germany. Horizont describes the plans of Courseticket to enter the German market, while Boerse.Express quotes Berthold regarding the fantastic growth of the company. One subtitle of etailment – an E-Commerce blog – addresses the ongoing talks regarding integrating the Courseticket cloud-based software within leading Austrian corporations. In Germany, the Venture Capital Magazine published a short and fresh summary about the deal. More reports to come! 😉
