Headstart Studios, a Hamburg, Germany-based leader in digital advanced education services, has successfully closed its growth financing round by Caldec Holding. The investor will join as a minority shareholder and partner with Headstart Studios’ management team to accelerate the company’s growth strategy and the expansion of its product portfolio into e-learning programs for digital marketing as well as in the area of corporate learning.
Headstart Studios’ CEO Marc Johannsen explains: “Several thousand employees have already successfully completed our learning programs and show that our approach with guided learning journeys, a mix of various formats, continuous social learning and high practical relevance meet the market demand and deliver the desired learning success. Based on that knowledge and additional capital funds, we intend to further expand our product portfolio and lay the foundation for sustainable growth. I am very happy to have found a partner who shares our vision for successful learning, adds real entrepreneurial spirit and will strengthen our growth strategy in the long term.
