Thinkful, an online school that uses one-on-one tutoring and personalized curricula to help students rapidly learn employable skills has raised $1 million of seed financing from RRE Ventures, Quotidian Ventures, and Peter Thiel‘s FF Angel.
“The simple fact of education is that we learn best from experts,” said Darrell Silver, CEO and co-founder of Thinkful. “Nine out of ten students enrolling in massively open online courses (MOOCs) aren’t completing them. We believe personal interaction and collaboration with students is required, and we’re building Thinkful to make this possible for everyone.”
The company was formed last year and it aims to help students advance their careers by training them in courses for web development and programming.
Funding Total: $1,000,000
