Purpose of financing for Oneday

Earlier in seed financing, Oneday raised GBP 2.5 million. Brighteye Ventures and Outward VC led the financing back then.
What the company’s official has to add
Ranbir Arora, founder and CEO of Oneday, said, “Following a successful fundraise of $6.2 million, we are hugely excited to launch our new MBA programme, which is just the first step in creating a broader education system around entrepreneurship. It’s clear to see that AI is fundamentally taking over routine knowledge work jobs, and at Oneday, we see this as an exciting opportunity to reposition our society into solving new problems for humanity by creating new businesses instead of teaching students how to do things we already know how to do.”
What the investors have to add
Benoit Wirz, Founding Partner of Brighteye Ventures, further said, “Formal education is too often theoretical, detached from the real world. Oneday breaks that mould by offering the first-ever practical degree in entrepreneurship. This isn’t just about studying textbooks and passing exams. It’s about hands-on training and building as you go, fostering a mindset of innovation and resilience. We’re proud to back Oneday as they pave the way for a new era of practical, impactful learning.”
In addition, Johannes Weber, General Partner at Ananda Impact Ventures, said, “Accessible, practically-oriented entrepreneurial education holds the key to unlocking individual financial independence, driving economic growth, and fostering innovation. With Oneday, this opportunity becomes accessible to all. We are delighted to be actively involved in this transformative endeavour.”
