Masterplan, a Bochum, Germany-based online training company, raised €6m in Series A financing.
The round was led by Tengelmann Ventures, with participation from Dieter von Holtzbrinck Ventures, ex-Bertelsmann CEO Gunter Thielen, Monkfish Equity, Thomas Bachem, Feliks Eyser and Fedor Holz.
Co-founded by Stefan Peukert and Daniel Schütt, Masterplan has just launched Masterplan.com, a training platform with the aim of digitizing the German economy.
The platform provides every employee – whether Digital Native or Digital Immigrant – with video content to understand technological changes, promote digital action and reduce prejudices.
Companies can gain first-hand access to knowledge by leading experts such as Trivago founder Rolf Schrömgens or Thomas Bachem of the CODE University of Applied Sciences to create a digital thinking mindset and address new organizational structures, learn key skills such as digital marketing and IT security and legal situations, such as the GDPR.
The platform is used by The Otto Group and Siemens.
