NewSchools invests in the most innovative, promising, early-stage entrepreneurial organizations working to make a difference in public education for students from low-income communities. We are currently making investments as part of the following funds.
The Innovation Fund
Through the NewSchools Innovation Fund we make investments in three specific areas — People, Tools and Schools — selected not only for their ability to impact low-income children, but also because of the extraordinary potential to influence broader systems by focusing on their intersections.
The NewSchools City Funds support the growth of entrepreneurial organizations that can dramatically improve education for students from low-income communities in targeted urban and high-poverty areas. We are currently operating City Funds in Washington, DC and Boston, MA.
The Seed Fund
Through the Seed Fund, NewSchools invests in entrepreneurs developing education technology tools, applications, content, and services that will significantly improve education opportunities for children from low-income communities. The Seed Fund was created to make investments in early-stage, pre-Series A education technology companies often overlooked by the traditional investing community because of their focus on schools.
