Your business model in three sentences

Deutschfuchs is a web-based Blended Learning platform that addresses people who learn German in language courses. We sell licenses (SaaS) to teachers, schools, universities, and other institutions. Deutschfuchs is already used by students worldwide.

What problem do you solve?

While many schools still do not have a sufficient internet connection, many lack devices for students, the media competence of the various actors in the education sector needs to be trained and overhead projectors still adorn the classrooms, there are several urgent construction sites in our society: People with a migration background are often affected by inequality of opportunity and are often not sufficiently integrated into society. 12% of Germans are functionally illiterate. More and more young people leave school without a school-leaving certificate. At the same time, there is a glaring shortage of skilled workers, which threatens the economy in the long term.

What's your digital solution?

Deutschfuchs is a learning platform for German as a foreign and second language and for individual language support. The software combines LMS (Learning Management System) and training area with a digital textbook (A1-B2) and enables contemporary teaching of the German language in the sense of blended learning. In this way, students learn effectively, sustainably and with fun.

Why should we award you for your digital business model?

Language is the key to integration. With our learning platform, we enable people with a migration background or people with German language support needs to easily access high-quality education and revolutionise language learning in an institutional context.
