Research suggests that throughout Canada and the United States, student’s math skills are lagging. Knowledgehook software surfaces what concepts they’re struggling with, identifies why and suggests how teachers can support them.
The round was led by Sayan Navaratnam of Aadya Capital and CEO of Connex Telecommunications and also includes investors Steve Case, co-founder of AOL, and John Abele, co-founder of Boston Scientific.
Miller Thomson advised Knowledgehook in this transaction with a team that included Todd Bissett, Prabmeet Sarkaria and student-at law Samantha Santos (emerging growth & venture capital), assisted by Cynthia Thorne.
