Levered gets international recognition for innovation in elementary education.

Levered is picking up steam as students headed back-to-school with distance learning, and our equity crowdfunding campaign surpassed 100 investors.

In the first week of back-to-school, we saw 2000 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade students log into Levered from their home and get to work on the same core curriculum they would access if there were in their classrooms. One of our partner districts, Ojai Unified School District, saw an over 90% participation rate at 40 minutes of average use per day by their students.

Meanwhile, Levered is being recognized internationally as one of the most innovative ed-tech companies, with three appearances in the last days of September and October 1st.

This Wednesday, September 23rd, Levered was picked as one of 8 companies to present in the Shark Tank at the U.S. – Italia Education Innovation Festival. The festival brings together the Center for Education Reform and Stoà, the historic management school in southern Italy, along with edTech Week and edmaven, to focus on innovations and technologies that amplify, engage and educate the world's students.

Closer to home, in Monterey, Levered was selected to present in the Venture category at the Startup Investment & Community Capital Expo, on September 28-30th, focused on a theme of inclusivity and recovery.

Wrapping up a big September, ASU+GSV Summit is featuring Levered as one of the Global Elite 200, a collection of the world's most innovative ed-tech companies. You can register for free here and gain access to talks by Colin Powell, Malcolm Gladwell, Bill Nye, Gloria Steinem, and more.

Be sure to check our pitch video here, and be ready to vote for Levered in the GSV Cup, where we may be competing for $250,000 non-dilutive investment dollars and Google Cloud credits.
