With a steady stream of students and parents enrolling in school, a few tech companies are trying to change the game for students.
But many more are hoping to give them a leg up.
The Wall Street Journal reported on a startup called Dearborn Financial Education, which is hoping to offer financial education to Singaporeans.
It’s using a virtual education system to give students access to financial advice.
In addition to being a virtual school, the company is partnering with a company called Financial Edge to provide a “virtual banking” platform.
The startup has received over $300,000 in funding from venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz, Founders Fund, and SV Angel.
It was founded in October 2016.
Dearborn Financial also has a partnership with Microsoft, which it says will help it build a “cloud-based learning platform.”
The company also plans to partner with other technology companies to offer its students access.
According to the WSJ, Dearborn has secured a “significant funding round from Google, which was the first major investor in the company.”
