Here is what Elm City Labs has to say about building UClass:

“Zak and Leah are incredibly inspiring and committed to their vision to connect classrooms around the world. We like to work with founders who know their market well and have a clear sense for how to improve it and Zak and Leah clearly fit that description.

UClass is important because we believe technology interaction and learning will be a big part of the 21st century classroom. It’s disruptive because there are no good online solutions on the market that enable classroom collaboration for elementary school.

We’re really excited about the potential of connecting kids around the world. UClass makes that possible with it’s new innovative technology. The other most valuable part of UClass is its power as a communication tool that strengthens the relationship between teachers, students and parents. We’re super excited to help UClass achieve its vision and looking forward to seeing it in classrooms across the world!
