— Jonathan Hagmaier, CEO Veracity Verification Solutions

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, December 13, 2022 / — Virginia Venture Partners, the equity investment program of Virginia Innovation Partnership Corporation (VIPC), today announced an investment in Veracity Verification Solutions. Roanoke, Va.-based Veracity is a third-party verifier of educational software products for EdTech and educators. Veracity will use this funding to develop the company’s growing library of on-demand assessments.

Many educators are using their limited time and resources to find products that meet the specific needs of the school district while also providing students with appropriate resources. Both EdTech Providers and Educators are being asked to do more with less now more than ever. Veracity helps to bridge the gap between the two, and maximize resources for both EdTech Providers and Educators. A team of experienced educators conduct a comprehensive product assessment to verify the efficacy and merits of a software solution, allowing product teams to align product strategy with educator-driven decision-making.

“With a strong team that has deep experience in EdTech, we make it our mission to collectively seek greater student achievement,� says Jonathan Hagmaier, CEO. “Our marketplace provides unbiased, merit-based product evaluations, empowering educators to help meet the needs within the education system. Together, we aim to move education forward and we are truly thankful to play a significant role in supporting school districts across the country. We thank VIPC’s Virginia Venture Partners investment to help continue this growth.�

Veracity’s tech-savvy educators review and validate each product on the marketplace based on a rubric of features, including ease of use, accessibility, student engagement and data security. Veracity’s Verification Reports provide evidence-based research on the features and functionality of each product and helps lessen the amount of school resources used for researching, evaluating and purchasing
educational technology.

“With Veracity, there is a huge opportunity to move EdTech forward by providing unbiased, informed and fiscally responsible purchasing decisions in K-12 schools globally.� Jennifer O’Daniel, Senior Investment Director, Virginia Venture Partners. “The future of EdTech is here, and we are so excited to contribute to Veracity’s growth and continued success in the education sector.�
