PXR has advised German edtech start-up Knowunity on its €9 million Series A extension round. The round now totals €19 million, after the company had already raised €10 million last year.
Knowunity is a peer-to-peer learning app for secondary school students based in Berlin. The platform allows students to access important school content, such as summaries, learning notes and exam preparations, and to share the content with other students, following the example of social networks. In the past, Verena Pausder and the German footballer Mario Götze, among others, have invested in the start-up. In the new financing, Redalpine, Stride, Educapital and Project A are now participating alongside other business angels.
