Student tracking startup Clipboard lands Jelix Ventures backing as school activities return

Keeping track of all the things kids get up to outside of the classroom is one of the biggest juggles parents and educators face, but a new startup, which just raised $850,000 from startup VC firm Jelix Ventures, is well on its way to solving that problem.

Software venture Clipboard, founded in late 2017 by Sam Clarke and Ed Colyer, has developed an online attendance tracking system that streamlines timely communication for staff, students and parents as students move around for extracurricular activities.

Parents can both view the children’s schedules and receive instant notifications of any changes via Clipboard.

The venture has grown by seven times in the past 12 months in a market with $1.8 billion in potential globally.
