Nesta has invested £2.25m over 4 rounds into Third Space Learning since 2015. TSL is a leading provider of one-on-one maths tuition online, at each stage enabling the business to develop its technology, attract larger rounds of capital and bring in new institutional shareholders.
The business sells into UK primary schools and directly to families and enables children who are falling behind to catch up. Low numeracy is a strong predictor for long-term deprivation and is linked to unemployment as well as problems in work and home life.
