Impact-driven education provider Role Models is currently raising money – ideally to the tune of £750K plus – on Crowdcube. It’s nearly there, with just under a month to go.
Role Models offers online and offline courses aimed to promote social and emotional wellbeing amongst 3-15 year-olds. It was set up to address a shortage of critical life skills – as exemplified by the fact that one in three adults don’t believe school adequately prepared them for adult life.
The edtech brand is looking for investment to fuel growth, having accumulated £2.4M in total revenue since its April 2020 launch. It already boasts partnerships with Credit Suisse, Allen & Overy, BNP Paribas and others, but says it needs to invest in marketing, tech and curriculum development to scale.
