Our Roots in Education
The education sector has been a core focus of Serent’s investment efforts since our founding in 2008. Our roots in education grow deep. From our Limited Partners which include several world-renowned institutions of higher education to one of our firm’s partners who is a former teacher for Teach-for-America, the mission of educating the next generation is engrained in our DNA.
Understanding of the Market Dynamics
Since 2008, Serent has partnered with 10 high-growth companies in EdTech, to help them accelerate their growth. We have a deep appreciation for the nuances of serving this diverse market. With pedagogical and administrative needs differing widely by region, state, district and even individual rooftop, not to mention age range and student population type, addressing the EdTech market is far from one-size-fits-all. Traditionally long sales-cycles and shifting federal, state and local funding sources add to the complexity. In our experience, success in the EdTech market often requires a regional geographic ground-game with intimate local knowledge, grass-roots customer advocates, and relationship-based sales.
Partnering with Entrepreneurs Behind
Bootstrapped EdTech Companies

With our deep understanding and experience in the this market, the Serent team is here to partner with EdTech founders like you, helping you navigate the shifting landscape, maximize long-term shareholder value, and generate the impact and results your offerings deserve. Regardless of which corner of this exciting market you are focused on, we look forward to meeting you, hearing about your journey and exploring how we can partner.
