Warsaw-headquartered CampusAI, which revolutionises the way people learn to use AI, has raised $10 million in pre-seed funding. The round was led by Polish angel investor Maciej Zientara, the founder of Supernova Group (backed by Berlin-based PropTech1 Ventures) and a partner in JR Holding.

Funds utilisation

The funding will support CampusAI’s expansion to its first new market within three months and add as many as 10 new countries by the end of the year. It will allow the company to create a global network of interactive platforms teaching collaboration with AI and launch a virtual district for testing ideas. 

“I’m thrilled to become a part of this global project that will impact not just the corporate world, but all of society,” Zientara said. “CampusAI has developed a unique, scalable educational concept for AI, giving organisations a competitive edge in addressing the challenges of the digital revolution while respecting the principles of social responsibility. Artificial intelligence will affect everyone’s job, which is why it’s so important to develop effective education that gives people the skills they need to thrive in the labour market of tomorrow.”

“After achieving success in the Polish market, we’re ready to expand globally with the backing of an investor who shares our vision,” CampusAI co-founder and CEO Aureliusz Górski said. “Maciej Zientara has extensive experience in building value on international markets. He’s the dream investor for any startup, because he brings in know-how, not just cash.”

What challenge does CampusAI resolve?

According to a report from PwC, 70% of CEOs worldwide believe that generative AI will transform how their companies operate in the next three years. However, many of these CEOs are not AI experts and are uncertain about the ways to train their employees in this area. Boston Consulting Group found that 62% of top executives cite a lack of skills as one of the main reasons they are unsatisfied with their organisation’s AI efforts.

This is where CampusAI comes in. Its online learning platform teaches skills for collaborating with AI, using its proprietary Human+AI Collaboration methodology. For an annual or lifetime fee, users can enter a virtual world with their avatars to take classes, attend meetings, and build communities, often in digital replicas of real-life buildings.

What does CampusAI do?

The company was founded by Aureliusz Górski, who has raised more than $70 million as a venture builder and developed six organisations over the past 17 years. His previous projects include AIP Business Link, Poland’s first coworking and startup accelerator network, and CIC Warsaw, an innovation center for scale-ups.

The company immerses people in the world of AI and trains them to use the technology effectively, including by setting their learning path, choosing tools that fit their personality, and writing better and more complex prompts. Its avatar-based blended learning model boasts completion rates up to 10 times those of traditional e-learning methods.

Corporate clients can use the CampusAI platform to build comprehensive e-learning suites that support digital transformation. Its ecosystem visualises its interactive content using a cutting-edge software engine developed for gaming, allowing the creation of custom learning environments. 

In addition to businesses, CampusAI is partnering with universities and public-sector organisations, providing them with an engine to build their e-learning platforms. 

“For digital transformation to be effective, it has to be based on strengthening an organization’s most important asset: its people,” said CampusAI Co-founder and CEO Aureliusz Górski. “That’s why it’s so important to create an environment that makes it easy to learn how to work with AI. Our Human+AI Collaboration model makes people more proactive, creative, and effective, allowing an organisation’s leaders to engage their teams at all levels in their vision for transformation driven by generative AI.”

“The first targets in our sights are the English- and Spanish-language markets,” said CampusAI Co-founder and CTO Szymon Piekarz. “Our ultimate goal is to have a presence on at least 100 key markets, with 1 billion TAM; in the short term, we are seeking to build a community of 200,000 loyal users. Outside the purely educational aspect of CampusAI, we’re seeking to build revolutionary technologies that help learners spread their wings and succeed in a world where technology is driving rapid change.”
