August 7, 2017

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.
