Remind101 Lands $3.5M To Modernize Teacher Communication

Remind101 has developed a mobile platform that allows teachers to quickly send reminders to both students and teachers via text or email.

While many industries in the U.S. have undergone massive changes in the last 10 years, the educational system appears much the same as it did 100 years ago. While timely and effective communication is critical to K-12 education, says co-founder and CEO Brett Kopf, schools still continue to use the same old physical intercoms, phone trees and PA systems to communicate with students they always have. Because text messaging has become the primary mode of communication for most students, Remind101 has developed a mobile platform — with apps for iPhone, iPad and Android — that allows teachers to quickly send reminders to both students and teachers via text or email. Whether these notifications are about deadlines or permission slips, Remind101 acts as the middle man between each group, while ensuring that communications remain secure and private.
