The founding team have evolved an impactful and sustainable business model with strong tenets of physical and digital intervention for K-12. While the addressable market is well identified, I think I’ll be able to with the founding team to truly unlock the strength of publishing with its partner network. They already have a reach into 20,000 schools out of which 7,500 are user schools. Right content, with right pricing and supply chain will help grow our business, both in current user school as well as help recruit new schools.”
