US: Tutor management platform Pearl raises $4m
Richmond, Virginia-based tutor management platform Pearl announced its tranche seed fundraise has surpassed $4 million led by Blu Venture Investors, with participation from Fidi Ventures, among others.
The company partners with enterprise tutoring providers, districts and state agencies to launch, scale and run hybrid tutoring programmes.
Pearl stated that the capital will be used for talent development and expansion, new data and reporting engines.
John Failla, founder and chief executive of Pearl, said: “Stressed and cracked by the pandemic, our education systems and services need help and very few things can fill the gaps and provide support to teachers, students and parents better or more quickly than quality tutoring. This latest investment is a recognition of the power of tutoring as well as a show of great confidence that Pearl’s unique tutor management and reporting tools are both timely and critical to meet our growing education needs.”
