Kiddom, a San Francisco, CA-based visual collaborative system for K-12 classrooms, raised $6.5m in funding.
The round was led by Khosla Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, Khosla investment partner Keith Rabois joined Kiddom’s board of directors.
The company will use the funds to build additional products and features for its operating system for K-12 education.
Led by Chief Executive Officer Ahsan Rizvi and Chief Academic Officer Abbas Manjee, Kiddom provides a collaborative platform that allows teachers and students to work together featuring a dashboard for teachers to discover content, assess, and analyze student work, and tools for students to stay organized, submit work, and get feedback in a timely manner.
