| OUR VALUES
Long Term Partnerships
We know how long it takes to build a great company. It takes even longer to grow an edtech business. We establish long-term partnerships with entrepreneurs and stay by their side as long as it takes to achieve their goals.
We believe that social capital makes the biggest difference. We have spent many years building the world’s best network of industry mentors and experts to market and stage appropriate advice to our entrepreneurs.
Diversity and Impact
We strongly believe that change in education should be driven by diverse innovators. 66% of companies we invested in are founded/managed by entrepreneurs who identify as female and/or BIPOC.

We collect data at every step of a student’s journey through Beetools. We provide this data to a teacher’s dashboard so he or she can understand the student needs and provide individualized feedback for each student. This way we can teach students with different skills in a different way.
