In their second round of venture fundraising, ClassDojo has raised close to 21 million dollars to further expand their app. This app is free to use and helps to keep the school to home connection open. This open line of communication has helped to eliminate surprises at the infrequent once a quarter parent teacher conferences. Parents are now aware of how their child is doing in the classroom before they even come to the meeting. This capital will be used to grow the team and expand the features of the already popular app. At home features will now be expanded to help parents open the lines of communication with their child at home.
ClassDojo is used as a medium for teachers to share class information and moments in real time. Parents can access this information through their mobile devices or computers. Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don wanted to create an app that would help to create culture in the classroom. Dojo creates that community and culture among the teacher, students, and parents. This widely used app is currently used in over 85,000 schools across the country. The app is free but they hope to start making money soon. They will never make money off of personal information and plan to make money off features. Visit amazon.com for more details.
