What we've achieved so far...

Over 2,100 tutors onboarded.

We can build the school, but without the teachers it means nothing. Our tutor recruitment team has onboarded over 2,000 experienced and qualified teachers and tutors. Our most recent survey shows that over 41% of our tutors are qualified UK teachers.

An innovative product.

Iterate. Improve. Refine. We're obsessed with the product and it shows. So far, we've created a real-time, high-quality online classroom, an innovative calendar and scheduling system for tutors to manage their bookings and combined this together with a complete payment system.

Over 487% growth from January 2021-2022.

By providing the best possible service to our students and tutors, we've collected over 660 5 star TrustPilot reviews and grown our weekly bookings by over 487% from January 2021 to January 2022. We're forecasted to do the same again this year.

What we're going to do next...

We're only just getting started. We've got ambitious plans to turn Sherpa into a global EdTech brand. Here's the plan.

Further accelerate growth.

With the work of our incredible marketing and technical team, we're on track to accelerate growth further over the 2022 academic year. We've got a laser focus on growing the core business of 1-1 tuition.

Develop additional products.

We're going to build revenue-boosting products that fit into Sherpa. Providing tuition directly to schools and group lessons are both on our radar.

FAQs

What is equity crowdfunding?
When you invest in equity crowdfunding you buy a percentage or share of a business in the hope that the value of that company will increase over time. Hopefully, the business you have backed goes on to make an ‘exit’ at a higher value than when you invested, and you will get a return on your investment and make a profit. Please be aware, that investments of this nature do carry risks to your capital.
What is Crowdcube?
Crowdcube is a UK crowdfunding platform that matches brands looking for an investment with a wide variety of everyday and experienced investors who want to share in the future of companies they believe in.
I've registered my interest, what happens next?
Firstly, thanks so much for registering. Secondly, we’ll send you exclusive access to our Crowdcube page as soon as it launches privately. On Crowdcube, you’ll be able to view more information about our equity raise and make your investment.
What benefits do I get as a shareholder?
When you become a shareholder in Sherpa, you’ll own a piece of our company and be part of our brand’s bright future. We cannot guarantee the outcomes of our business, but being a shareholder means you’ll share in the financial success of a sale, an IPO or dividend returns.

Your Capital Is At Risk

By registering your interest, you are not making a commitment to investing in Sherpa's Crowdcube campaign. We'll get in touch with you via email when the campaign is opening for investment.

As always with investments, your capital is at risk. The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than you invest.

Your investment may be locked up for a long time, as you'll only receive a return when the company is bought, goes to market in an IPO or begins to pay dividend returns to its investors.
