SEI Ventures is a corporate-backed seed fund that invests in ed-tech startups. It is part of Strategic Education, Inc (SEI).

SEI offers a suite of innovative programs and services, to help our working adult students advance their careers and improve their lives.

With a focus on improving college affordability, student engagement and workforce readiness, we support the growing majority of non-traditional students and ensure that our graduates have the skills required to succeed in today’s jobs.

At SEI, we have built a workplace culture that embraces new ideas, technologies that support better pedagogy, and tools that make student support (e.g., financial aid, career services) better and more transparent.  At most times, SEI has several new technology pilots running with ed-tech startups. We set these up as A-B tests to measure outcomes and provide our startup founders the feedback they need to improve their products. Given this, SEI has built a track record of helping startups test products, build more compelling features, and demonstrate efficacy.

SEI Ventures is our newly launched investment management group. As a corporate-backed fund we invest in innovative ed. tech. startups and help them grow.

By working with a company on all aspects of the business, we become partners and lend our full support to move the startup forward. Our innovative start-ups can test products across our degree programs and with our base of 80,000+ learners and students. We’ve also helped a number of founders improve their products, accelerate their go-to-market activities, and grow their businesses.
