An investment in NewSchools supports the work of passionate entrepreneurs who are measurably improving and expanding educational opportunities for underserved children. In partnership with our investors, NewSchools provides the capital and expertise needed to turn visionary ideas about education reform into high-performing, sustainable organizations.

NewSchools’ investors recognize the value of significant, long-term financial investments in promising organizations. They rely on our team to discover and vet entrepreneurs through a disciplined diligence process, and to provide management expertise that strengthens their ventures as they grow to scale. They share our goal of developing programs of significant size and reach — not because bigger is necessarily better, but because so many children are in need of more effective teachers, higher quality schools, and cutting edge tools to support teaching and learning.

NewSchools welcomes investors into a community of philanthropists and social entrepreneurs that are working together to transform public education and provide excellent schooling to children who have been denied that fundamental opportunity. Join us in supporting entrepreneurs working to ensure that all students are prepared for success in college and life.
