‘Bloomz is uniquely positioned to engage young parents today in the same way that these parents are used to interact with their personal and professional worlds on Facebook or LinkedIn. It will become a central point for parents for everything around their children,’ said Jake Medwell of 8VC (founded by Joe Lonsdale) ‘This is a must-have app for every community that engages parents with children in pre-K-8 grades. ”
John Frankel, a partner at ff Venture Capital, said that his company was impressed by the strong commitment metrics and continued growth of Bloomz, adding, ‘With its first year of launch, Bloomz captured the imagination of both teachers and parents. We look forward to boosting further growth to help Bloomz become the dominant force in parent engagement. ”
Rudy Gadre of Founder’s Co-op, who was also the first General Counsel on Facebook, jumped on the Bloomz opportunity very early and the group made a follow-up investment in this round. ‘Bloomz addresses the need for a space that is ripe for disruption, thanks to the new generation of mobile and social-savvy parents entering the school system. ”
The app’s rich set of tools includes real-time updates, photo sharing, event and volunteer coordination, and parent-teacher conference sign-ups, among other community-building tools to engage mobile and social parents today. Bloomz is the only comprehensive app that connects not only parents and educators, but also PTAs, church groups, Girl/Boy Scouts and daycares. Bloomz has recently won the EdTech Digest 2016 Best New Product Award and is featured in the Apple App Store as ‘Perfect for Every Classroom.’ ”
‘We are thrilled to have the support of these renowned investors to make the Bloomz vision of connecting parents to teachers and the world around their children a reality,’ said Chaks Appalabattula, CEO of Bloomz. ‘With rave reviews, strong word-of-mouth, and more than 95% of teachers surveyed to ‘love’ the app, it’s clear that we’ve built an app that’s intuitive, easy-to-use, and powerful in connecting pre-K-8 communities. Our team is looking forward to seeing Bloomz in the hands of every teacher and every parent. ”
