We are Multiverse, on a mission to create an outstanding alternative to the traditional college and university system, and a radically better approach to corporate training. At the heart of our work is professional apprenticeships. Our impact focuses on three primary areas: measuring potential beyond academics to recruit apprentices, delivering world-class job-focused training via applied learning programs, and helping diverse groups of young people build social capital and strong networks through a thriving community both on and offline.
In Europe we are expanding rapidly and already work with over 300 clients including Facebook, Morgan Stanley, KPMG, Kantar, Citi and Microsoft. Our footprint in the US is rapidly growing, with equally impressive clients as our partners.
We are fortunate to have some of the best investors in the world backing us, including our recent Series B funding round, led by General Catalyst and featuring GV (Google Ventures), and including Audacious Ventures, Latitude and SemperVirens. We passed a major milestone in raising the largest venture round from a UK EdTech company in history. Other investors include Index Ventures and Lightspeed Venture Partners, as well as Microsoft Chairman John W. Thompson, 23andMe CEO Anne Wojcicki and Sky Executive Chairman Jeremy Darroch.
