frank-david-cohenKlassroom, the mobile application that reinvents the parent-teacher relationship, announces that it has raised 300,000 euros from Allianz and Idinvest, thanks to the SmartAngels platform. The application allows parents to share the daily life of their children when they are at school, but also to be alerted instantly in the event of a problem or to warn of an absence.

The principle is simple: the teacher downloads the application (or connects via the company’s website) and creates a virtual classroom. He then shares the identifier of this class with the parents of his students, who can connect to it and add the name of their child. Completely secure and non-intrusive, the application allows parents and teachers to communicate with each other, but without sharing their contact details. Nearly 40 schools in France and the United States have already adopted the Klassroom application, as well as around ten classes welcoming children with autism. The start-up, supported by Axelle Lemaire, should “soon announce significant new developments at national level”.

Last observation, if they connect mainly via their mobile (80%), the sources of information they favor are rather traditional media: the Daily Mail, the Guardian or the Telegraph.

** Methodology: survey carried out among 224 French start-ups. Start-ups in the barometer are on average 6 years old.
