iversity > Open Courses: Education For Everyone

We are a diverse interdisciplinary team from Berlin. We’ve attended some of the world’s finest institutions. Yet, wherever we went, we were frustrated by the dearth of digital infrastructure in use. That’s why we set out to garner the wealth of opportunities to improve the quality of teaching and learning for future generations of students.

Following an EXIST-Founder Scholarship from the German Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, iversity received more than 1 million Euros in funding from the BFB Frühphasenfonds Brandenburg (EU 75% / Brandenburg 25%) and bmp media investors in July 2011. In December of 2012 Marcus Riecke joined the team and invested in the company together with the existing investors, the business angel Masoud Kamali and T-Venture, the venture arm of Deutsche Telekom AG.
