We were born from 40+ years of unyielding dedication to educational equity. On that foundation, we have added education leaders, entrepreneurs, and business builders who seek to invest for the long-term.

A-Street intends to invest in a mix of early-, growth- and late-stage ventures, with a focus on two areas within the U.S. K-12 education and education technology sector:

1 – Digital-first instructional materials in curriculum

2 – New paradigms for student assessment

Willing to Take Risks

We were founded on the premise that in order to fill the gaps in K-12 education, new ideas and risk capital is needed. We seek to try hard things that we are well-positioned to support.

Never Zero Sum

We aim to catalyze others to invest with quality and coherence as a central focus. This stance drives us to work in non-competitive, additive ways, both with for profit and non-profit partners.

What do we mean by coherence?

A-Street seeks solutions that respect and strengthen the relationship between the teacher, student, and content. Coherent tools build on the presence of high-quality core curriculum and leverage technology as an enabler of, not replacement for, excellent teaching.

These tools use data to provide insight into a student’s mastery of knowledge and skill, and to guide how educators spend instructional time. These tools are thoughtfully designed, rigorous, and connected holistically such that they create a
coherent user experience for the teacher and the student – one journey that builds from minute to minute, day to day, and unit to unit.
