Technology is the future, and hundreds of millions of people around the world are connected to each other through the web and smart devices. Messaging apps have become the normal way to communicate with others, and this is exactly why ClassDojo has decided to focus on a similar communication app for its educational platform. Parents and teachers are generally well-adjusted to using messaging applications, as are children of this generation, making ClassDojo great for the school environment.
ClassDojo is free for everyone to use, which is why they need funding in order to continue managing and expanding on the communication platform they have built. Recently, ClassDojo announced its third series of funding that successfully brought in 35 million dollars, sponsored by organizations like SignalFire and GSV, which also invests in other companies like Dropbox and Spotify.
Since hitting the market in 2011, ClassDojo has spread across the United States and is seeing further use in more than 180 developed countries around the globe. Because of this, it is only natural that they need a healthy source of funding to continue bridging the gaps internationally. Part of the plan for ClassDojo is to utilize the 35 million in funding to develop a sustainable source of income for the company. The main application will always remain free to allow open communication between parents, teachers, and students, but they plan to add in extra features that parents and teachers can purchase if they choose.
