Innovative Problem-solving with DreamBox Learning
Here’s a challenging math problem: What can be done when only 33% of U.S. eighth-graders test proficient at math, per the U.S. Department of Education? One promising answer comes from DreamBox Learning.
The Bellevue, WA, education technology leader is tackling this issue with its proven, intelligent adaptive learning™ platform. The company’s online, game-like experience motivates K-8 students to persist, progress and achieve math success as they follow a personalized learning path based on their own understanding of math.
Buoyed by a $130 million investment in 2018 from The Rise Fund, the world’s largest social impact investment fund, DreamBox Learning is on its way to becoming a powerful partner in classrooms across the globe. Already, the platform is used by 130,000 teachers and more than three million students in every state in the U.S., as well as the District of Columbia, Mexico and throughout Canada.
Western Alliance’s Bridge Bank offers the growing tech company its own proven, problem-solving skillset. “Bridge met our innovative flair with financial innovation,” said Jessie Woolley-Wilson, President and CEO of DreamBox Learning. “They helped us see past impediments to possibilities. They understand what it means to be a banking partner.”
What I appreciate is that our bankers at Bridge tell us, ‘If you think something isn’t possible, call us. Let us tell you it’s not possible.”
