What "Series A Crunch"? Edutech startup StudyBlue raises $9 million Series A funding in Wisconsin. By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)
Edutech startup StudyBlue helps college and high school students study online and on their phone. The Madison, Wisconsin-based company, co-founded by CEO Becky Splitt, has raised $9 million in Series A funding from Great Oaks Venture Capital, with participation from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.
Becky has over 15 years of experience growing early-stage tech businesses, including Brite Voice Systems (a company she was in early-stage through IPO), as well as corporate experience at Microsoft.
From the StudyBlue website: "StudyBlue is made by a group of hard-working Midwesterners bent on building the best mobile and online study tools ever created. Additional team members include backers on both coasts and around the world, plus the over two million users who provide the feedback that helps make StudyBlue better every day."
