Declara Secures Further Series A Funding

Dan Primack reports this morning in his Term Sheet e-mail newsletter that Declara, a California based personal learning company, has secured additional $9MM Series A funding. The investors participating are EDBI (based in Singapore) and Linden Venture Fund (based in Chicago). The previous participants in earlier Series A round funding raised by Declara are GSV Capital, Data Collective, Founders Fund and Catamount Ventures.

It is interesting to note what does Declara mean for data in education in general – since Declara’s proprietary platform, The CognitiveGraph™, uses massive data collected about an individual’s every interaction on the network to tailor the content and delivery time of content for that individual’s particular learning style to improve the learning outcome.
