    Building from the success of the NewSchools Seed Fund, Reach was formed to provide startup capital and support to education companies focused on issues of access and opportunity in education. Reach is on a mission to seed the most inspirational, uplifting and engaging educational tools which help educators and families realize children's full potential. Reach supports the most promising entrepreneurs developing technology solutions for challenges in early childhood, K-12 and higher education. We invest in early-stage tech tools, applications, content, and services to improve education opportunities for all children. The Fund also acts as a catalyst, inspiring and enabling traditional and non-traditional investors to provide capital to the fast-growing ed tech market. Core Reach II has invested $32 million in 14 mission-driven companies.
