San Francisco-based digital curriculum platform Kiddom has raised $35 million in a Series C round led by Altos Ventures, with participation from Owl Ventures, Khosla Ventures and Outcomes Collective, Tech Crunch has reported.
The financing came almost three years after Kiddom’s 15 million Series B round led by Owl Ventures.
Kiddom’s co-founder and chief academic officer chief academic officer Abbas Manjee said: “At our Series B, we were definitely not making money. But we have a free product that teachers and students use, and the idea was to build an enterprise product on top of it. It’s a common strategy with bottom-up sales. For example, ClassDojo prioritised adoption for years before it finally introduced a paying version of its classroom socialisation product.”
