Ed startup Inigral receives additional investment from Gates Foundation
Bill Gates has been dubbed the planet’s most generous person, and when he makes investments, the world pays attention. His foundation has given away billions of dollars in grants and donations to nonprofits working global health, poverty and development, education, and special projects like emergency response.
Very rarely, foundation money serves venture capital, but today is one of those days. The Bill & Melinda Gates foundation has made an additional investment in education startup Inigral. This follows $2 million from last year, when Inigral became the first for-profit company to receive Gates money, as well as its first investment in education technology.
