Maria Schools has raised 2 million euros from Crédit Mutuel Innovation and other business angels to expand its reach. The campus, which was launched in January 2020, comprises three training schools for adults. The courses, taught by industry professionals, including entrepreneurs and experts, offer students access to digital practices such as computer programming and digital marketing.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been an accelerator for Maria Schools, which saw the opportunity to develop its multichannel training strategy. As a result, in late April, it launched its first online training program. With the funds raised from business angels and Crédit Mutuel Innovation, Maria Schools plans to deploy six new schools by 2023.
Crédit Mutuel Innovation is a subsidiary of the Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale, which is one of the largest banking groups in France. The company invests in high-growth startups that can bring innovation to the financial industry.
Maria Schools, on the other hand, is a startup that was founded by three entrepreneurs with a shared passion for education. The company aims to offer high-quality training to people of all ages and backgrounds, with a particular focus on digital skills.
The funds raised will allow Maria Schools to expand its presence and reach more students. The company plans to build new campuses in different regions of France to provide people with the opportunity to learn new skills and improve their employability.
