SuperCharger Ventures announces investment into Vygo to Accelerate Global Borderless Education Support
London / Hong Kong, 28th Feb 2022: SuperCharger Ventures a leading global EdTech accelerator, has made one of its very first co-investments by joining a $2,000,000 round led by European EdTech VC Sparkmind, also including the Australian Catholic University, as well as other undisclosed institutional and private investors.
Vygo, part of SuperCharger Cohort 2.0, is working with higher education institutions around the globe to reinvent the conventional social support ecosystem online and to ultimately build borderless social education communities for each student.
The investment will allow the Australian founded company to accelerate their expansion into the European market and further consolidate their already-established presence in the Asia-Pacific market. The demand for Vygo has sky-rocketed in recent years due to the need for Higher Education institutions to extend their support services beyond the physical campus.

We are a strong believer in Vygo’s mission to “Give Every Student Personalised Support”, whether it’s on-campus or online and we couldn’t be more excited to support Ben, his co-founders and the team at Vygo in entering the European and US markets. We are pleased to have been able to both help Vygo as a cross-border EdTech accelerator during our second cohort and subsequently provide funds to help them to scale beyond their home market!”
