Twenix, a Spanish edtech company that helps professionals break down the barrier of communicating in English, has scooped €3.5 million in Series A funding.

Who invested in Twenix?

The round was led by Brighteye, a leading European edtech VC, which has also invested in companies such as Oneday and Skiller Whale. In addition, JME Ventures and Inveready have also continued to support the project alongside numerous business angels.

Prior to this, Twenix raised funding in December 2021 and the round saw participation of Banco Sabadell.

With this new round, Twenix’s strategy is to strengthen its position in the international market, focus on its establishment in Italy, and further develop its methodology and digital platform. The company also seeks to grow its business model by strengthening its reach and support to companies and businesses.

Among the improvements, it will soon launch last-minute bookings that bring the ability to book classes just 15 minutes in advance. Also, Twenix will launch a new service for users to access a library with different specialised content to reinforce other skills such as “listening” and “reading” and maximise their 1to1 class results.

“This round of funding is essential to continue investing in the expansion to Italy, a market that excites us. After months of traction with very positive results, it represents a first step towards the internationalisation of Twenix in other European countries,” said Jorge Moreno, CEO of Twenix.

“Twenix gives businesses a uniquely affordable, efficient way to build language learning proficiency, unlocking incredible value for employers and employees alike. We’re very excited to help the team grow, enabling companies to better use English language training to attract, retain and grow talent across Europe,” said Ben Wirz, Partner at Brighteye.

English training at the forefront

Founded in Almería in 2017 by Daniel Delgado, Jorge Moreno, José Antonio Ruís and Miguel Sanz, Twenix aims to cover the lack of English training focused on companies and professionals in the labour market.

The company’s methodology is based on improving verbal communication and is aimed at enabling users to put their knowledge of the English language into practice from day one. Based on 1to1 classes with teachers from all over the world, the users are immersed in situations that they would find in their place of work or personal environment, obtaining the necessary tools to achieve their objectives through the language.

Twenix works with over 230 teachers from all over the world, having tripled the number compared to June of last year, and in only 6 months they have exceeded all of the classes taught during in 2021. It has a presence in Madrid, Barcelona and Milan.
