Luther supports start-up Easy Tutor in financing round of EUR 4.8 million

Munich, 15.12.2022 – The online tutoring provider Easy Tutor has received EUR 4.8 million in fresh capital from Bayern Kapital, the venture capital company of LfA Förderbank Bayern, and the Munich-based family office K+K1 around Timify founder Andreas Knürr. Easy Tutor was again advised by Luther Rechtsanwaltgesellschaft. The law firm had already advised Easy Tutor in previous financing rounds in 2020 and 2021.


With their investment, the investors not only express their confidence in the technology developed by Easy Tutor, but also participate in a market that, according to market analyses, is more resilient than others, not least due to its social relevance.

EdTech will use the fresh money to further develop its own digital platform and drive growth – in German-speaking countries as well as in immediate foreign countries from mid-2023. Accordingly, Easy-Tutor is investing in further relevant partnerships, such as cooperations with schools and associations.
