Remind, the secure messaging app for teachers, students and parents, said it had garnered another $40 million, bringing total capital raised to $59 million. The Series C funding round was led by current investor Kleiner Perkins, as well as Social + Capital Partnership and First Round Capital. CEO Brett Kopf said the funding will be used for international growth, first in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe, as well as technology, community and support improvements. Kopf said that Remind has 350,000 new users signing up per day, and is connecting one million teachers with 17 million students and parents for what is essentially an “operating system for education.”
