Dexter Raises $1.4 Million to Build the School of the Future
We're thrilled to announce that we've closed a $1.4 million seed round led by LAUNCH, NewFund, BluePoint VC, and angel investors across the country. This funding will allow us to supercharge our mission to make the world more intelligent and to build an education system that empowers K-12 students with powerful ideas in engineering, science, art, humanities, and entrepreneurship. Dexter bundles live instruction, a core knowledge curriculum, hands-on tasks, and physical spaces in a way that's radically accessible both financially and geographically. We are the Model T of private education.
