Justin Wedell

Senior Associate Partner

Justin Wedell is a Senior Associate Partner at NewSchools Venture Fund. He supports the Learning Solutions strategy, with a particular focus on ed tech organizations seeking to increase equity by accelerating positive outcomes for Black, Latino, and low-income learners.

Prior to joining NewSchools, Justin worked with Cornerstone OnDemand, 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 morning surf, trekking the wilds of the California coast, or harmonizing with the NewSchools gang in karaoke.
