Herbst Kinsky has advised Viennese start-up GoStudent on its EUR 70 million Series B investment round, which included existing investors Left Lane Capital and DN Capital as well as New York fund Coatue. Goodwin and Schoenherr advised Left Lane, and Cooley and Wolf Theiss reportedly advised Coatue.

So far, GoStudent is active in ten European countries, with more than 250,000 booked tutoring hours per month. This year five more markets are to be opened up.”

Herbst Kinsky's team was by Partner Florian Steinhart with the support of Attorney Felix Kernbichler.
