    Follett Corporation established the Follett Knowledge Fund as a capital funding source for new technologies the company feels have the potential to improve or disrupt the way educational content is delivered and consumed. The Follett parent company generates more than $2.7 billion in annual sales by providing universities, libraries and schools and school districts with a wide range of educational tools and services. Follett has committed $50 million to the fund, which complements and extends the company's extensive portfolio of digital solutions and tools in the education field. The fund is co-managed by the Menlo Park-based Atrium Capital, which will help to identify, analyze and manage investment opportunities for the fund and serve as an adjunct to Follett's business development activities in the emerging technology space.
