Paris-based MentorShow secures €15 million for its online training and skills development platform

EdTech startup MentorShow has picked up a fresh investment boost of €15 million to expand. The French startup is shaping a new era of training and skills development with its digital platform. 

Education is a rapidly evolving space and thanks to technology it’s now becoming more and more accessible. In the modern world, lifestyles are changing and increasingly we look for ways to develop new skills, try out new hobbies and learn new things. Digital tech is making it possible and more accessible.

Paris-based MentorShow was launched in 2020 by Mathieu Moreno and Léo Dubert to shape a new future of digital learning and training. The startup has just secured new funding to expand.

Funding details

  • €15 million secured in an investment led by Educapital and Crédit Mutuel Innovation
  • Business angels and existing investors, including Left Lane Capital and All Iron Ventures, also participated
  • It brings the total amount of funds raised to nearly €20 million

MentorShow is an online learning and training platform. It offers video courses that are created and hosted by renowned experts – such as Karim Benzema, Boris Cyrulnik, Pierre Gagnaire, Christophe André, Pierre Hermé, Frédéric Mazzella and Marc Lévy.

Léo Dubert: “For many, learning is not a pleasure. We believe that developing skills should be as exciting as watching a good show. Why do we reserve high-definition cameras and celebrities for content that entertains us, not content that accomplishes us? At MentorShow we want to create a new way of learning, combining the strengths of community, gaming and entertainment so that the choice to invest in yourself becomes obvious.”

The startup aims to encourage a future of autonomous learning. Users can choose what themes most interests them, and the times that work best for them to learn and develop their professional and human skills. The platform leverages edutainment to make learning as engaging as possible.

Marie-Christine Levet, co-founder of Educapital: “In the post-COVID world, the desire for personal development has flourished and people are looking for new ways to explore their potential talents or develop their hidden passions. At the intersection of learning, entertainment and inspiration, Mentorshow’s courses fully meet this need. We are delighted to contribute to this new round of funding aimed at their European rollout.”

Since its launch, the Parisian company has brought together nearly 50 mentors. The masterclasses cover fields as varied as sports, cooking, management, well-being and
leadership and have already attracted over 500k people in France and Spain.

Maxence Valero, investor at Crédit Mutuel Innovation: “The world of training is not immune to the major changes in society. Mentorshow has succeeded in developing an innovative value proposition whose potential has been rapidly demonstrated, as evidenced by the growing number of registrants to the various educational courses.”
With this latest funding boost, the startup now plans to launch new types of training, multiply partnerships with world-renowned mentors and accelerate its international expansion.

Léo Dubert, co-founder and CEO of MentorShow, said: “We are happy and proud to have such prestigious funds and business angels join our capital and we thank them for their trust. We are confident that they will bring the experience and resources needed to take us to the next level.”
