Justin Wedell

Associate Partner

Justin Wedell is an Associate Partner at NewSchools Venture Fund, supporting ed tech entrepreneurs working to address the most pressing gaps in K-12 education. 

Prior to joining NewSchools, Justin worked with the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation, where he helped to develop, implement and scale technology solutions designed to support greater impact in education and workforce development. Justin has an MBA from UC Berkeley-Haas, a degree in Political Science from UCLA, and is a Teach For America alum. 

When Justin isn’t focused on all things ed tech, you can find him out enjoying the wonderfully frigid Northern California surf, trekking the wilds of the Oakland hills, or harmonizing with the NewSchools gang in karaoke.
