Wonde’s £1.6m seed round is the largest seed investment round to be made by any graduate of Emerge Education, Europe’s largest edtech accelerator programme. This huge endorsement solidifies Wonde as a real disruption in the market, and puts the company on course to completely transform how information is shared between schools and the edtech industry.
Wonde eliminates the need for applications to integrate with each school system individually, as Wonde already supports the majority of systems in place used by UK schools. Software developers only have to undertake one integration in order to access all the information they require, no matter how many schools they support.
Once a school is integrated with Wonde, there is no longer any requirement to send and maintain time-consuming CSV files, or build and update connections with various suppliers. Wonde’s fully managed service includes ongoing maintenance of the school data connection, guaranteeing that the information the applications receive is always up to date and reliable.
With data protection at the forefront of many schools’ minds, and the edtech sector continuing to grow at a rapid rate, Wonde is an innovative and affordable solution that is set to reshape the industry landscape. – Peter Dabrowa, CEO, Wonde
In addition, Wonde provides peace of mind to schools as they work to meet with Data Protection Act regulations, as well as working towards the GDPR compliance. The simple Wonde interface means schools who can approve or deny requests by third parties and easily manage what information can be accessed, and by whom.
Local West Suffolk MP and Digital Minister Matt Hancock said: “Wonde are at the cutting edge of technology, helping schools across the country use their data productively. They’re a prime example of Britain’s burgeoning edtech sector, and based in Newmarket too. As both local MP and Digital Minister I’m delighted to see Wonde’s growth, creating jobs locally and helping schools use modern technology to serve their pupils.”
