Agency & online solution for sustainable school education /
Opening up schools for the expertise, engagement, enthusiasm and ideas of society is key to an education system that strives to be fit for the future. The school world has to be much more closely linked to the “real” world. The mission of the social enterprise SchulePLUS is to achieve this goal by connecting schools with external partners such as corporates and individuals and by integrating their specific knowledge into the curriculum through project weeks, practice-driven tuition and onsite factory tours. Since 2013, SchulePLUS has reached a convincing proof of concept and was able to attract 600,000 pupils to its only one-year-old online platform “schülerpraktikum.de”. To expand the agency business as well as to establish and build up two online offerings that are targeted at job orientation and advanced education for teachers, the social enterprise raised growth capital in a second round supported by FASE.
