What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

I need help with team building and securing funding to build my start up. Over the past year I have attended various startup Meetups and Education Tech events hosted by various organizations including New Orleans based 4.0 Schools. I have used these events to network in the efforts to find a trustworthy application developer who can bring my vision to fruition. There have been several false starts, but I remain hopeful. Additionally, I have heard many of my VC funding requests are not being considered due to a lack of insider assistance. I would greatly benefit from bringing on a team member with connections within the funding universe.


About my venture

We will offer parents/ guardians real time updates including but not limited to grades/attendance, class schedule and parent-teacher communication. Additionally, each State Department of Education will be allowed to customize the application to suit their specific needs and budget.

Prior to in high school, I began suffering from a learning handicap that undiagnosed until much later. An application like this would have been invaluable to someone like me; providing my parents and teachers a platform to communicate more than the twice a year during PTConferences. How I got here? After spending 9 month researching the US Education system, I zeroed in on underrepresented demographics that would benefit from this application. I also spent four months working with NYC DOE family and communications engagement office. There I learned the true value of the application to all families regardless of income or educational background
