Monarch Teaching Technologies, Inc., a Cleveland-based maker of a special education teaching software, called VizZle®, raised $250k in funding.
Venture development organization JumpStart made the investment via the Health-Tech Corridor Attraction Fund, which focuses specifically on investing in companies that relocate to Cleveland’s Health-Tech Corridor (HTC).
The company intends to use the funds to build out its sales and marketing infrastructure.
Founded in 2005 by CEO and President Bob Gephart, Monarch develops visual learning software for the treatment of children and adolescents with autism. This software, which became VizZle, has since been adapted for use by schools, clinicians and parents of children with all sorts of other special education needs as well.
