Schoolrunner logoDENVER - Schoolrunner LLC, a Denver-based enterprise technology platform for K-12 schools, has received a $1.5 million investment from the Colorado Impact Fund, a private equity fund dedicated to supporting Colorado companies that generate consistent investment returns and positive community impact.

Founded in 2012 by Charlie Coglianese, Schoolrunner gives teachers a single place for all their student data across academics, behavior, attendance and communication.

Starting with a single school in New Orleans, the company has grown to serving 72 schools across the nation with more than 50,000 students.

"Data is playing an increasingly influential role in strengthening instruction and improving student outcomes," said Ryan Kirkpatrick, partner at CIF. "Charlie Coglianese and his team have built a user-friendly and integrated platform that allows schools to harness that data to inform decision-making."

With Schoolrunner's technology, administrators and teachers can effectively track and analyze student data in one platform, which improves workflow efficiency and provides the ability to quickly identify when students are falling behind.

"Our vision is to give educators professional tools to spare them precious minutes and let them bring a timely, data-informed awareness to their job of educating and inspiring," Coglianese said.

"This investment from CIF will make it possible for Schoolrunner to bring our technology to more schools more quickly."
