Today we’re announcing that LearnBoost has raised money with AngelList.  LearnBoost makes an “easy-to-use online gradebook for teachers.”

LearnBoost was referred to us by two-time Power Broker Harper Reed. They used AngelList to contact George Zachary and Jeff Fagnan who invested:

George then introduced LearnBoost to AngelList members Bill Lee, James Hong, and Othman Laraki who also invested:

Bill Lee (Investor in Tesla Motors)
James Hong (Investor in Slide)
Othman Laraki (Founder of Mixer Labs)

Finally, here’s a few of the investors who sourced LearnBoost without AngelList and invested:
