    SEI Ventures is the corporate venture capital division of Strategic Education, Inc., and is a seed-stage venture fund that supports pioneering education tech start-ups focused on transformational technologies and student success. In addition to providing capital, SEI Ventures offers portfolio companies the opportunity to pilot technologies across its broad set of existing institutions, including Strayer University, Capella University, and coding boot camps. SEI Ventures plans to issue a formal request for higher education technology companies to apply for funding in 2019. When selecting companies to invest in, SEI Ventures will focus on the following criteria: improving teaching and learning through artificial intelligence and machine learning; removing friction from non-instructional student experiences; encouraging student persistence; and designing the future of work.
