OOHLALA! Dear colleges: Do your students have trouble remembering to set their alarm clocks and finding their way to class? If so, this Montreal, Canada-based startup may have just the tool for you. OOHLALA, a 2016 Y Combinator graduate, has raised $4 million in Series A funding to build an app that aims to help higher-ed administrators improve student engagement. The tool, used in more than 200 institutions, streamlines communication about campus events, emergencies, and yes, even when class starts.
