The spring semester has wrapped up and it’s been an exciting year for Packback. We started the year as a team of 22 working to find our place in education. Since then, we’ve secured $4.2 million Series A funding, added 20 new team members and reached students at more than 100 universities! We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far and we’re excited to take our next steps in pioneering the future of curiosity and critical thinking. What does that look like? This year we are excited to continue growing our team, improving our product and expanding our footprint to awaken and fuel the lifelong learning in every student!
We are stuck in a fast-answer epidemic. Students have practiced finding the quickest solution, instead of learning how to internalize information and participating in thought-provoking discussions. At Packback, we believe that when students are given an opportunity to be curious and ask the big questions, they’ll be equipped with skills to become future innovators. Packback encourages students to explore classroom materials in a new and interesting way, which makes students more willing to engage and apply their learnings.
