New Schools Venture Fund NewSchools is a nonprofit venture philanthropy firm working to transform public education for low-income children.

OVERVIEW

Description

As a national nonprofit, we raise charitable funds from donors and invest them to support education entrepreneurs. We select investment areas where innovation funding is needed to support new ideas that have the potential for positive impact.

NewSchools investment teams use many of the same investment practices as venture capital firms: we cultivate pipelines of entrepreneurs, rigorously screen them, and invest in those with the greatest potential to improve student learning. We support our ventures with customized guidance and resources to help them succeed. Since we are a nonprofit organization, the returns we seek are educational and social, not financial.
