Edutech startup Kidblog closes on $400k seed round



Kidblog initially disclosed intentions of raising $400k earlier this May, and over the course of a summer in Silicon Valley, the local edutech startup has closed that seed round with confidence.

Kidblog is just that — a blogging platform designed for K-12 teachers who want to provide each student with an individual blog. It was invented out of necessity by Eden Prairie elementary school teacher Matt Hardy in 2008/2009 and launched with partner Dan Flies in early 2010.

Classrooms have been flocking to Kidblog from the onset, with current adoption around 140k teachers and 1.8m student users.
