MasteryConnect, a Salt Lake City, Utah-based education technology provider, raised $3.425m in Series A funding.
The round, which brought the total amount raised to $8.975m, was led by Catamount Ventures, with participation from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, Deborah Quazzo of GSV Advisors, Learn Capital, and returning angel investors.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate adoption of its platform in K-12 schools.
