CHALLENGE

Education technology companies serving the needs of our target student population lack aligned investors and capital to scale

  • Consumer-facing companies capture a significant share of current funding, leaving those with district/school enterprise models behind
  • There exists a clear Series A-C funding gap that poses a threat to the long-term scalability/sustainability of the industry

PROGRAM STRATEGY

Support Owl as investor dedicated to identifying, supporting, and catalyzing capital for educational technology companies serving low income students

  • Use PRIs to strengthen the availability of technology enabled content and tools that truly meet teacher and student needs while providing incentives to cultivate a strong investor base that will attract more capital to the sector long-term
