We were so excited to see BrightWheel featured on Shark Tank last night! If you're not familiar with BrightWheel, it's a software platform that helps early childhood educators manage their classrooms.
The Sharks were impressed with the company's growth, and we think it's just the beginning for BrightWheel. We're excited to see where the company goes from here!
Shark Tank investor Mark Cuban is backing edtech startup brightwheel in a $7 million Series A round.
The deal, which was announced on Wednesday, will see Cuban join the board of directors at brightwheel.
The startup, which provides a platform for early childhood education providers, will use the funding to expand its product and engineering teams and to grow its sales and marketing efforts.
"We are thrilled to have Mark Cuban join us as we continue to build the leading platform for early childhood education providers," said brightwheel CEO and co-founder Dave Vasen.
"His experience as a serial entrepreneur and investor will be invaluable as we scale our business and continue to innovate in the space."
Founded in 2013, brightwheel has raised a total of $9 million in funding to date.
The company, Brightwheel, makes a software platform for early childhood education providers. The platform includes tools for tracking attendance, behaviors, and communication. It helps educators to manage their classrooms and connect with families.
The brightwheel platform helps educators track children's development and engage with families. It's easy to use and helps you stay connected with what's going on in your child's life.
When Cuban finally visited the office, he was impressed by the team and technology. "I was really blown away by how much they've accomplished in such a short amount of time," he says. He also says he was impressed by the company's teamwork. "They work together really well and are always pushing each other to be better."
This is a very exciting development for the education technology sector in Cuba! This is the first time that Cuban investors have put money into an education technology company and it is a very positive sign for the future of the sector.
This investment will help the company to develop its product and expand its reach to more schools and students in Cuba. This is a very positive step for the education sector in Cuba and we hope to see more investment in the future.
