NewSchools Summit 2016 provides a platform for over 1,000 entrepreneurs, educators, community leaders, funders, and policy makers to share ideas on how we can transform public schools so that they prepare all students, in every neighbourhood, to achieve their most ambitious dreams and plans.

NewSchools Venture Fund was created in 1998 by social entrepreneur Kim Smith and venture capitalists John Doerr and Brook Byers, each of whom had witnessed the power visionary entrepreneurs held to create dramatic change in other sectors, such as technology.

NewSchools’ founders believed that education entrepreneurs could similarly bring about much-needed change in public education if they had access to both early-stage capital and strategic, hands-on support to start and grow their organizations. We built NewSchools Venture Fund to enable a new type of capital market that could support the development of entrepreneurial ventures serving high-need students within public education.

In our first 17 years, we invested $250 million in 150 education entrepreneurs. Among their many accomplishments, they started 450 schools serving  over 171,000 students around the country  and created education technologies reaching more than 60 million students and their teachers worldwide. Throughout our history, we have invested in three key areas: schools, tools, and people.  The investment focus in each area has evolved over time to address emerging needs and opportunities.
