Jul 12, 2013

VC VISION: "When [edtech startups] get to Series A, because of where the industry now, they don't get an 'education discount.' They're compared to the other consumer companies out there." So says Jennifer Carolan, Managing Partner of NewSchool Venture Fund's Seed Fund, in a Q&A with San Francisco Business Times. There she shares her take on the investment landscape, the rise of "teacherpreneurs," why the Bay Area's stocked with talent, and that dreaded "bubble." Those with money on their minds should also check our recap of a recent EdSurge event where Carolan and James Byers from Wikispaces debated the merits of going after VC money.
