Google investment fund dives into Web education

Google investment fund dives into Web education | Business Opportunities in education  - investment, partnerships & LEADERSHIP | Scoop.it
Google Capital is putting $40 million into Renaissance Learning Inc., an education software company, and plans to do five or six deals this year, Lawee said. After jumping into early-stage investing in 2009 with the creation of Google Ventures, the Mountain View company is funding a team that can write bigger checks for Web businesses that are further along in their development. Renaissance, owned by British private-equity firm Permira Advisers, provides cloud-based education software, including reading and assessment tools that the company says are used by nearly 20 million students and teachers in more than 60 countries. While Google may be new to late-stage investing, it can provide a competitive advantage to companies by helping them in areas like marketing, Lawee said. Google Ventures has invested in online music service TuneIn Inc. and Web coupon company RetailMeNot Inc. The venture group also backed digital thermostat maker Nest Labs Inc., which Google bought last month for $3.2 billion.
