Prosus N.V., a global consumer internet group and one of the largest technology investors in the world, announced today that it has acquired a majority stake in GoodHabitz B.V., a European provider of online training for businesses, for approximately €212 million.
“We look forward to becoming part of the EdTech powerhouse that Prosus is building,” said Maarten Franken, CEO at GoodHabitz. “Companies around the world face big challenges effectively educating their workforces, particularly now with the explosion in home working over the last 15 months. We hope to accelerate our international growth working with the Prosus team, helping more customers build a workforce that is ready for the future through enabling more people to access online training.”
GoodHabitz was founded in 2011 and provides enterprise clients with a broad range of cost-effective soft-skills learning content relevant to their entire employee base – currently delivering 150 courses available across eight languages.
