Hyrise Academy raises angel funding

May 12, 2021

Around 10 months ago, Dominic, Michael and I (Alvaro) started talking about launching something together. We shared a passion for enabling other people to build better careers and lives, and showing the world the benefits and opportunities of working in sales.

Six months and one trip to Portugal later, Hyrise Academy was born.

Our purpose was clear: To give people the space they deserve in the digital economy by building the educational model of the future: accessible and designed for employability.

The past months have been filled with some great progress. We:

  • Built an incredible online tech sales course validated by over 50 tech companies.
  • Signed 15+ hiring partners, including Hubspot, Doctolib, Pleo and Personio.
  • Have 8 wonderful students we will soon place (see picture below!).
  • Closed our first upskilling deal.

Today, we are very happy to announce three more people that will be joining us in this great journey as early-stage investors:

Dirk, Martin and Felix bring extensive experience as founders themselves, and are also investors at several great companies. They bring huge value to our team, and we couldn't think of better partners to continue pursuing our purpose.

The six-digit funding round enables us to move more effectively in all of the areas that are key to our success. We will continue to build the best tech sales program in the industry, be laser-focused on placing our students at top tech companies and make some key initial hires.

We want to thank everyone who has supported us so far on our journey from idea to launch, funding, and beyond ♥️

Onwards! 🚀
