Jeff Jordon: Wonderschool. I’ve had a front row seat to a set of companies where new technologies have immediately created new streams of income for millions of people. These companies typically enable (what Airbnb founder Brian Chesky refers to as) “micro-entrepreneurs” (micropreneur): eBay, Airbnb, Instacart. (I think only eBay really qualifies)
Our newest investment, Wonderschool, is in the model of these impressive companies: Its mission is also to help more people achieve economic empowerment by creating micro-entrepreneurs out of educators
Wonderschool offers a platform where educators and childcare providers can start and manage pre-school programs out of their homes — and a marketplace for parents to search for and pay for those in-home preschool programs.
