NewSchools Venture Fund Launches Ignite Challenge to support EdTech in Early Learning
NewSchools Venture Fund, a leader in supporting entrepreneurs and educators who want to reimagine learning, today announced their first-ever Ignite Early Learning Challenge with support from Omidyar Network.
NewSchools recently conducted market research and uncovered unmet needs in EdTech tools tailored for early learners. This research – a compilation of data from entrepreneurs, educators, funders, and school leaders – inspired the Ignite challenge for innovative EdTech tools to support young students.
“Given NewSchools Venture Fund’s track record of sparking new ideas and activities in education for nearly 20 years, Omidyar Network is proud to help support the first-ever NewSchools Ignite challenge focused on early learning,” said Isabelle Hau.
“We want to foster greater innovation in early learning and create quality solutions for all children, their families, and their teachers.”
