Unlocking human potential through education technology.
About Rethink Education
Our mission is to unlock the full human potential of people who have been marginalized or underserved by investing in impactful education technology companies. We want to help people thrive in their work, their personal lives, and their civic engagement.
We focus on helping the poor, those who are cognitively or physically different, deskless workers and the under-employed, the incarcerated, refugees and other immigrants, and those who experience persecution because of their race, gender, sexuality, or any other aspect of their identities.
We seek to transform the way that people learn. Learning experiences need to become less passive, less rigid, and less shame-based, and more inclusive, more joyful, more meaningful, and more centered on the needs of learners.
We believe that education at every level should combine the joy and playfulness of preschool, the intense collaborative experimentation of a hackathon, and the deep, self-guided exploration of a doctoral program.
We are looking for companies that can have a transformative effect on calcified institutions, communities, and value systems. For over a decade, we have invested in tools and technologies that increase access to learning, leading to profound change for individuals, families, and communities.
We seek companies that partner with school systems, employers, and large education operators to deliver solutions at scale that help ensure the best resources serve all students, regardless of socioeconomic background. Through our close partnership with CEOs, thought leaders, and other key stakeholders, we are working to change the educational landscape.
We typically enter companies at the Pre-Seed, Seed, Series A or occasionally Series B stage.
