Its SaaS product is used by over 4,000 US schools to manage their websites and Intranets, to enable collaboration among parents, students, teachers and administrators, and to manage administration taks and the distribution of learning materials.
Schoolwires has a great management team, who've done it before as part of Sungard Systems' higher education software business.
- Go Internet Media is an online advertising network that specialises in delivering applicant leads to higher education institutions across the US. The company operates information websites such as searchbydegree.com and freeeducationguide.com that help consumers find the right online or offline university and guides them through the application process.
Both companies are good examples of the type of business we love to invest in: they are profitable, bootstrapped, founder-owned companies that have demonstrated an ability to grow rapidly using little or no external capital. That puts them in a strong position to accelerate growth with judicious use of our investment capital.
