Morphose Completes Funding Round for Sherpa’S Online Tuition Platform

Morphose Capital Partners, London-based specialist in Mergers and Acquisitions, corporate restructuring and finance, has completed a further funding round for ‘EdTech’ Sherpa. Sherpa Online provides high-quality, interactive online tutoring for learners of all levels. Sherpa sets itself apart from other platforms with some unique technologies to enhance the learning experience and works only with properly vetted, qualified teachers and lecturers. The funds raised will be used to enrich its curriculum-aligned content, launch new offerings and to expand into new territories to meet growing demand.

“With exam marking systems reset to pre-Covid times but with many students still suffering from the setbacks and lost learning time during lockdowns, we’re seeing substantial demand for additional tutoring from students of all backgrounds,”

comments Conor Hughes, CTO of Sherpa.

“This latest round of funding will accelerate the launch of new initiatives that will help make tuition more accessible and affordable for students from all backgrounds. Morphose has helped us find experienced angel investors to support us into the next stage of our growth trajectory.”

Launched in 2020, Sherpa now offers access to over 3000 experienced teachers available to teach all areas of the curriculum and has hosted over 66,000 lessons to date, having grown 176% YoY (2022 vs 2023 academic year). Sherpa has also recently become a government-approved National Tuition Programme Partner, allowing them to launch a dedicated Schools Platform to supply subsidised tuition directly to schools through the National Tutoring Programme.

Nick Atherton, CEO at Morphose comments:

“Sherpa enables students to find the best possible online tutor for their individual learning needs. Tutoring helps boost knowledge, confidence and can provide valuable exam and learning techniques helping students reach their potential while providing them with a learning toolset for life. Sherpa offers investors an attractive, fast-growth addition to their ‘EdTech’ portfolio.”
