o True Ventures Leads $650,000 Round of Seed Funding for Always Prepped

Palo Alto, Calif. -- True Ventures, the Palo Alto-based venture capital firm, has led a new $650,000 round of seed funding for Always Prepped, a Washington, DC-based education technology startup, the company announced on Thursday. Other participants included angel investors Hooman Radfar, the founder and chairman of AddThis, and Todd Gibby, a former executive vice president at Blackboard. Always Prepped, which launched in private beta this past June, is the developer of a dashboard that aggregates students' performance data for teachers. The goal is to let teachers more easily analyze and share metrics from a multitude of tools they use, such as Khan Academy, Edmodo, Engrade, ClassDojo and others. "We know that teachers use assessment tools, behavior tracking apps, attendance systems and other programs to monitor student progress, but the problem is the data's everywhere," said founder and CEO Fahad Hassan. "By creating one centralized dashboard to manage all of these data points, we’re filling a major void in education."
