The Jacobs Foundation has committed CHF 40 million to help unlock the impact of EdTech to advance learning and development. The commitment aims to make evidence an integral part of investment decisions, bring robust science into product design and strengthen collaborative efforts between donors.
To create impact the Foundation has launched three mutually reinforcing initiatives:
CHF 30 million will be invested in leading EdTech Venture Capital funds to promote the use of evidence.
A CHF 10 million research facility to bridge the divide between science and the EdTech industry.
EdFIRST – Education Foundations Investing in Research and Systems Transformation
An alliance of leading foundations to advance the EdTech industry’s focus on evidence-based impact.
