"It is tremendously satisfying to be able to announce the agreement by Education Growth Partners to this investment into Fuse Universal after witnessing their incredible journey over the last year at close quarters – particularly so during London Technology Week when there has been so much focus on EdTech.  We knew from the start this team was destined for success and Fieldfisher looks forward to working with them again in the next chapter in their growth."
