human​roads raises €1.5m to boost its HE focus

France-based edtech specialists humanroads has just completed its first fundraising round for a total of €1.5 million, which will allow it to significantly accelerate its technological and business deployment among higher and vocational education and training organisations around the world.

humanroads currently equips some 60 private and public institutions of HE

A pioneer in applying innovative strategies to deliver content required by international education leaders, lifelong learners, and policymakers, the platform currently offers two digital solutions ­­– humanroads Analytics and the Career GPS – capable of visualising and analysing millions of educational and professional data points.

“[Students and alumni] will be able to access new tools for visualising and analysing educational paths”

humanroads Analytics is a business intelligence tool for institutional leaders and their teams focused on curricular design and employability, while the Career GPS is designed for both students and working people to enable individuals in training, in employment, or in job searches.

Benoît Bonte, president of humanroads said the financial support will allow humanroads to support not only schools and university administrators but also students and alumni.

“In real-time [students and alumni] will be able to access new tools for visualising and analysing educational and professional paths,” said Bonte.

“Institutions will also be able to offer their students a self-paced and discrete opportunity of using this data to clarify the choices available to them as they contemplate further education and/or their careers.”

Although humanroads currently equips some 60 private and public institutions of HE such as NEOMA Business School and more than half of the Polytech Network in France, it is aiming to rapidly multiply its impact in this sector.

The Région Sud Investissement fund (advised by Turenne Groupe), CAAP Création, a subsidiary of Crédit Agricole Alpes Provence, Alumni Business Angels and a group of Parisian business angels have pledged their support to advance humanroads’ ambitions.
