About Tomorrow’s Education

Tomorrow’s Education is an Edtech startup based in Berlin founded by serial entrepreneurs, Christian Rebernik and Dr. Thomas Funke. Our vision is to redesign education and educate and empower leaders to tackle the greatest challenges of tomorrow together, today.

Our inspiration

We believe that one of the biggest challenges in education is the way of teaching itself. Therefore we are challenging the old teacher-oriented approach of traditional universities by shifting to a student-centric approach.

We want to provide our students with a unique opportunity to gain the relevant skills and mindset and then leverage their impact through a global network of like-minded creators.

Our mission

At Tomorrow’s Education, we leverage science and technology for effective learning and foster a global community for continuous growth and impact.
