Cologne - Fishing King offers online courses on the subject of fishing. A private equity investor, Afinum, has now invested in the e-learning provider. The founder and CEO of Fishing King, Hubertus Massong, was advised by a team from Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft.


Fishing King, the largest German-language fishing school, prepares around 100,000 participants for the fishing exam online every year. With the entry of Afinum, this is to remain the case, core markets are to be strengthened and new markets are to be developed. A special focus in the future will be on sustainable fishing.
