Kyron Learning Raises $14.6M in Series A

Kyron Learning, a Los Altos, CA-based startup focused on providing learners equitable access to great instructors, raised $14.6m in Series A funding.

The round was led by Global Silicon Valley (GSV) Ventures with participation from Owl Ventures, ECMC Group Education Impact Fund, Common Sense Growth Fund, Charter School Growth Fund, Cambiar Education, LearnerStudio, Imagine Learning, and Array Education.

The funding will be used to build out the Kyron Learning platform business, as well as to further develop the platform’s generative AI capabilities. In addition, the company announced that it has received a $850,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to further build out its K-12 math curriculum and to study the efficacy of interactive video as a mechanism in learning environments– all in support of both organizations’ goals of bringing quality educational opportunities to underserved learner populations.

Led by Rajen Sheth, CEO, Kyron uses interactive video in its lessons, powered by AI, to turn what has traditionally been a one-way monologue into a vibrant two-way conversation– just like a live tutoring session.

The platform delivers a tutoring experience, is available online and on-demand, 24/7, guides AI-facilitated conversation between the instructor and learner, detects and corrects any learner misconceptions on-the-spot as they happen, ensuring efficient learning and helping the learner stay on track, and provides instructors and institutions with data on what each learner knows and where they are struggling– all without having to do formal assessments.

Kyron also has offices in Boston and Seattle.
