UK founded tech apprenticeships provider Multiverse has acquired its first company, the Danish edtech training platform Eduflow. The acquisition will allow the unicorn to scale its operation.
Multiverse provides a different learning model to the traditional route of college and university education for tech learners by adopting the apprenticeships model which had traditionally been reserved for trades in years gone by. Now successful in the tech sector to give candidates the opportunity to 'earn as they learn', Multiverse provides training for the likes of Facebook, Google, Adyen, Morgan Stanely, and the NHS.
“When it comes to learning the skills needed to navigate the workplace, it’s clear that the future of learning isn’t lectures and textbooks, it’s delivered through the transformational power of working and learning combined," says Eduflow CEO David Kofoed Wind.
“By integrating Eduflow's technology and team into Multiverse's existing stack, apprentices will benefit from more specialisation to ensure their skills are directly applicable to their careers, and a greater level of peer-learning, to help build the connections, communication skills and teamwork necessary to thrive.”
Additionally Multiverse has announced a new hire as Ujjwal Singh takes up the role of Chief Product and Technology Officer. Previously at Meta, he led the development of Facebook’s suite of workplace tools, and has driven product innovation at Google and GoFundMe.
