Welcome Greylock Partners and Benchmark Capital to the Edmodo Team
Posted by: Edmodo
We’re excited to share with you that the Edmodo team has expanded!
This morning, we’re pleased to announce that Greylock Partners and Benchmark Capital have joined the Edmodo team. In addition, Reid Hoffman, Greylock Managing Partner and LinkedIn Founder & Chairman, has joined the Edmodo Board along with Matt Cohler, General Partner of Benchmark Capital and former VP of Product Management at Facebook, where he was one of the first seven employees.
As you can imagine, we’re excited about this announcement for a number of reasons; not only do they bring expertise in building the two largest networked communities in the world, but they also share our vision of building a global network that meets the specific needs of the education community while supporting our bedrock principle that Edmodo will always be free to use. With their guidance and the continued insight from Edmodo educators about the features and tools that are needed most in the classroom, we can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together in 2012 and beyond.
As always, thank you to the Edmodo educator community for your continued support, feedback, and dedication to helping us build Edmodo — you truly are the best community of teachers in the world.
Please welcome Reid and Matt to the Edmodo community!
