We are pleased to announce that Peter, the Messenger tutoring bot that lets middle and high school students help each other out, raised €400K in its first financing round with Kima Ventures, The Family and other business angels.
Founded in December 2016, Peter showed impressive traction by getting 100,000 sign-ups in 48 hours, forcing us to rethink our go-to-market strategy.
“Most students are not happy spending their days in a boring classroom and very few people seem to care about it… We want to build a product that is simple, playful and where the student is at the center of the experience. Most of our inspiration comes from the new peer learning models that we see emerging around the world.” Jean-Sébastien Wallez, CEO of Peter
We now aim to reach 10,000 courses per week over the next 18 months.
