About Sown To Grow

Sown To Grow (STG) is an early-stage education technology startup that empowers schools to improve student social, emotional and academic health through easy and engaging reflection and feedback processes. We are building a student check-in and reflection platform where students set goals, check in on their progress, and reflect on their feelings and strategies that are working best for them (or new ones to try).

We are a small, nimble team that is inspired to make a difference in the world while building a successful business. Before starting Sown To Grow, our founding team spent several years working in both the private sector and schools/districts. We care deeply about building a product that positively impacts student outcomes and makes teachers’ lives easier.

Sown To Grow has received seed funding from highly selective, innovative funds including the National Science Foundation, US Department of Education, NewSchools Venture Fund, Imagine K12 (now Y Combinator EdTech), Impact Assets, Jane VC, Digital Promise and others. The company currently serves schools in 40 states and has large-scale contracts with organizations such as Metro Nashville Public Schools (TN), Oakland Unified School District (CA), KIPP, and more.
