Convertsation, a Pittsburgh, PA-based edtech platform, closed a seed funding round from F2P Ventures.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
Led by Daniel Hack, founder and CEO, Convertsation is a text-based discourse platform that allows educators to enable small group real-time discussions that boost interactivity and support bespoke curriculum outcomes. Using an array of features and technology that includes AI and customization settings, the platform provides measured insight on student participation and engagement. Teachers can create assignments and groups; share discussion prompts and outside resources like news articles, images, and videos to tailor discussions to enhance online discussion among students.
With the investment, the Convertsation team will continue to add functionality to the platform’s text-based format and accelerate the company’s commercialization efforts and users, which already includes colleges like Colgate University, Carnegie Mellon University, New York University, and numerous public and private high secondary schools.
