Edoome (AngelList profile), a social learning management platform that turns classrooms into an online community so teachers, students and parents can communicate and collaborate easily and securely, just signed an agreement to launch Edoome in all of Chile’s public school system. In the next few months, 200k+ teachers and 3M+ students at 12,000+ Chilean public schools will start to use Edoome, making students’ and teachers’ lives easier and better. The majority of teachers who use Edoome save more than two hours of planning and preparation time per week, letting them focus on what they do best: teaching students.
This agreement is a big step forward for Edoome, as it brings an entire country’s education system into the Edoome platform. In addition to this agreement, Edoome has been growing quickly in Mexico, Spain, the US, Ecuador and Colombia over the past 6-12 months and now has more than 75k teachers and 150k students using the platform. Edoome just recently did a soft launch in the US and is growing at 20+% monthly.
Edoome is part of a wave of software and cloud based services that are helping change education for the better. I’m really excited about Edoome in 2016, not only because the platform is growing quickly, but also because the team has struggled for five years to get to where they are today to provide something useful that positevely impacts students and teachers. They’ve had their ups and downs, their false starts and pivots, and are now turning the corner. Edoome is also one of the few Chile based companies that has been able to raise money both from US and Chilean investors, making it one of the models to follow for companies that are based in Latin America and want to go global.
Note: Edoome is a Magma Partners portfolio company.
