GSV Ventures has closed our second venture fund at $180 million.
We’re at a tipping point for a new era in education. Almost overnight, COVID-19, forced 1.6 billion students and their instructors online. The world leapt from B.C. (“Before COVID”) into the new era, A.D. (“After Disease”).
That’s why we’re calling GSV Fund II — B.C./A.D.
In B.C., the education market has steadily evolved as 4.5 billion people have joined the internet over the past 25 years, creating new opportunities for learning for those on the spectrum of lifelong learning that we at GSV Ventures call “Pre-K to Gray.”
GSV Ventures is a venture capital firm investing in exceptional technology entrepreneurs creating scaled solutions in the “PreK to Gray” digital education and skills market. Our investments include Coursera, Class Dojo, Remind, Master Class, Degreed, Guild Education, and many more leaders shaping the future of education. We invest in education technology leaders positioned to achieve disproportionate gains. Additionally, GSV hosts the world-renowned ASU+GSV Summit with some of the globe’s most prominent speakers including Bill Gates, John Legend, Malcolm Gladwell, and Priscilla Chan.
