Panorama Education Raises $60M in Series C Funding Led by General Atlantic to Expand Tools for Educators to Effectively Support Every Student
September 2, 2021
Panorama Education, a leading K-12 education software platform, announced today a $60 million Series C investment led by General Atlantic, a leading global growth equity firm. Existing investors Owl Ventures, Emerson Collective, Uncork Capital, CZI, and Tao Capital Partners also participated. Panorama Education will leverage the funding to support continued product development, further deepen its district partnerships, and augment talent recruitment efforts.
Founded in 2012, Panorama Education’s mission is to radically improve education for every student. Educators use Panorama Education’s technology platform to understand their students’ academic and social-emotional strengths and to identify students in need of additional support. With Panorama, educators can select appropriate interventions and track students’ progress. Panorama Education offers a full suite of tools to help districts support the whole child, including research-backed school climate and social-emotional learning surveys, tiered intervention planning, and professional development.
Panorama Education now serves 13 million students in districts of all shapes and sizes. 50+ of the largest 100 districts in the country and state agencies use Panorama Education, including the New York City Department of Education, Clark County School District (Nevada), Dallas ISD (Texas), and the Hawaii Department of Education. One in four American students is enrolled in a district served by Panorama Education today.
“We started Panorama with the belief that student voice matters for building thriving school communities and for improving outcomes for students. Now, we’re building Panorama’s technology platform to be the core system helping educators drive student success and advance social-emotional learning. We’re incredibly proud that more than 1,500 school districts have decided to bring Panorama to their community to better serve every student,” said Aaron Feuer, Co-Founder and CEO of Panorama Education.
“With this investment led by General Atlantic, we are excited to grow our team, in Boston and distributed across the U.S., in order to accelerate product development and increase our district partnerships. This investment in Panorama will help deepen the positive impacts we’re seeing in school districts, such as improving graduation rates, fewer behavior referrals, more time engaged in learning, and stronger supportive relationships with adults and peers.”
Tanzeen Syed, Managing Director at General Atlantic, continued, “We are proud to back Panorama in its mission to improve holistic student outcomes. General Atlantic has long believed in the transformative power of technology within the education sector, and we view Panorama as a leader in building a differentiated digital platform to advance critical learning and development initiatives at schools across the U.S. We look forward to partnering with Aaron and the team to extend Panorama’s footprint and impact.”
As part of this funding round, Tanzeen Syed will join the Panorama Education board of directors.
