This fundraising round was led by LiveOak Venture Partners right here in Austin, and saw participation from SJF Ventures and Juvo Ventures, with one of LiveOak's founding partners, Krishna Srinivasan, joining our board of directors.
SchooLinks' Series A funding round means greater equity for college and career readiness.
As the workforce and cultural landscape change, so do the needs of the students who are preparing to enter both. Brand new career pathways and growing interest in careers that don't require a four-year degree both signal the need for a greater focus on making sure that students are career ready and college ready when they graduate. SchooLinks' platform is modern and engaging for both groups of students, providing a modern, world-class experience for students who are college-bound and populations preparing to pursue career-centric objectives, making it uniquely inclusive for traditionally underserved and overlooked student populations.
SchooLinks founder and CEO Katie Fang added that leveling the playing field requires the ability to meet the growing, legislative-driven demand for districts to track various success metrics, while also engaging students, their families.
