Invest in us

We’ve grown annual revenue >500% in < 12 months.

Since your investment in our last round of funding, we’ve hit key milestones to make our business sustainably profitable such as launching a partnership with a top 10 world/top 3 UK ranked university: Imperial College London. We’re launching a final secondaries round to allow shareholders a chance to increase shareholding and to enable early employees to get liquidity.

Introducing the power of HyperionDev
+ world leading universities

In late 2021, we pioneered a business model of partnering with universities across EMEA to scale coding bootcamp certifications under their brand. We started with just 1 university in December 2021 - the University of Edinburgh - and in 12 months we have successfully grown our model to 25 university partners, with signed contracts with some of the top universities in the UK including the London School of Economics, Imperial College London, and The University of Manchester.

Through these partnerships, we have unlocked nearly £40 million in growth funding through non dilutive income contracts for committed scholarships for thousands of students to take our bootcamps across the UK, with these contracts coming from a mixture of university agreements, agreements with local and national government (including a contract directly with the UK’s Department for Education), and agreements with top UK employers such as Ocado and BT.

We’re not a ‘COVID boomer’ business and we’re not experiencing a downturn like some of the largest tech companies in the world. Our core metrics - cost per acquisition, monthly active users, lead to enrolled student rate, revenue per university partner - have continued to improve even as pandemic restrictions have been lifted.

The pandemic permanently shifted university attitudes to working with companies like us, which we’ve embraced and succeeded in leveraging to reach 25 university partners and significant growth in the $117 billion Online Programme Management market.

Capital at Risk. Invest Aware

We’ve seen our conversion rates span for university-branded programmes in regions where the HyperionDev brand isn’t established, and are now in late stage conversations for launches with 5 more Russell Group universities in Q1, with an average annual revenue per university partner when programmes reach scale estimated at £3mil a year.

About this secondaries campaign

Our core team have been working on growing HyperionDev for nearly 10 years. Many have taken much lower than market salaries (averaging >£35k/year) and been compensated in equity. Having hit these milestones and delivered above the revenue projection for the financial year that was presented in our last investment round, we think it's a fair time to go out and seek liquidity for some of our team and to also do this at a time when the business has sufficient funds for growth and sustainability, without outside investment.

At a >£20mil revenue run rate & >500% YoY revenue growth, we’re valued at >£100mil. However, we’re offering a 30% discount for secondary purchases of at least £50k, i.e. secondaries will be processed at a £70mil valuation - which is only a 40% premium on the share price of our last round of funding, despite >500% revenue growth since. We believe this is a fair valuation and that our share price still has the potential to grow 10x, given the trajectory of similar business such as Trilogy Education ($750mil) exit and EdTech unicorns UpGrad, Emeritus, BYJUs, Coursera, and 2U - none of which managed to secure the University of Edinburgh as a partner, which we have.

We’re offering a final £1mil in secondaries (on top of £1.5mil already committed) on a first-come, first-served basis until 9 pm UK time on 2nd February 2023. This website will be disabled at that time.
