Homeroom, a San Francisco, CA-based convenient platform for after-school enrichment programs, raised $3.5m in seed funding.
The round was led by Forerunner Ventures, with participation from Felicis Ventures, Precursor Ventures, and Kapor Capital and angel investors Deborah Quazzo, Partner at GSV, Tyler Bosmeny, CEO of Clever, Jared Simon, Founder of Hotel Tonight, and Max Rhodes, CEO of Faire.
The company intends to use the funds to scale operations and expand offerings.
Launched in 2018 by Christina Walker, Homeroom provides parents, vendors and organizers with a solution to discover, book and manage after school classes hosted directly on their child’s elementary school campus.
In the first year of activity, the company scaled to elementary schools in 5 states and over 17 districts across the US.
