Ambi, a Boston, MA-based provider of a learner engagement platform for higher education, raised $5m in Series A funding and $1.5m in seed funding.
The round was led by Steigen LLC, VC NXT Ventures, Global Investment, and others.
The company will use the funds to continue to expand adoption and continue to develop its platform.
Led by Saad El Yamani, Founder and CEO, Ambi provides a learner engagement platform for higher education students. The interface is similar to social networks with integration to the course materials and features from Learning Management Systems like Canvas from Instructure, and Blackboard.
It is fully compliant with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, and allows campuses to share college news, information, announcements, and events.
