Tyton Partners represented Product School in securing its growth equity investment from Leeds Illuminate.

Product School, the global leader in product management training, has secured $25M in growth equity investment from Leeds Illuminate. The financing will support scaling operations to accelerate partnerships with a growing roster of Fortune 500 companies, redefining the landscape of career-focused certification.

“There has never been a better time in history to build digital products and Product School is excited to unlock value for product teams across the globe to help define the future,” said Carlos Gonzalez de Villaumbrosia, CEO and Founder of Product School. “Our company was founded on the basis that traditional degrees and MBA programs simply don’t equip Product Managers with the real-world skills they require on the job.”

Product School makes 90% of its resources available to everyone for free, because it believes firmly in democratizing access to education. This investment caps a momentous year for the school, including: publishing an Amazon bestseller, The Product Book, and hosting over 1,000 virtual events, such as The Proddy Awards and ProductCon, the largest online product management conference in the world that takes place four times a year.

“Product School’s extraordinary growth in the marketplace is evidence that product managers have an outsized role in driving digital transformation and innovation across all sectors,” said Susan Cates, Managing Partner of Leeds Illuminate. “Having built the largest community of PM’s in the world validates Product School’s certification as the industry standard for the market and positions the company at the forefront of upskilling top-notch talent for global organizations.”
