KidAdmit Gets Pre-Seed Funding

May 7, 2014

San Francisco-based KidAdmit says it raised an undisclosed "pre-seed" funding round from angel investors, including K9 Ventures, SV Angel investors, and private investors Wayee Chu and Ethan Beard. (Chu helped start the NewSchools Venture Fund Seed fund and is now a private investor.) The startup, which helps parents apply to preschools, was started in 2012. TechCrunch writer, Leena Rao, who was also an early parent user of KidAdmit, describes the service here. It was founded by mom and finance exec, Tejal Shah and her cousin, former PayPal engineer, Parth Shah. Here's their blog posting about the funding.
