Bedrock is an online resource that aims to improve the English literacy of students in schools across the globe, through varied interactive activities. Launched late 2015, the product has been sold to 29 schools internationally, with 85% quarterly user base growth and over £40k revenue so far.

  • The growing Edtech market is set to be worth over $220bn by 2020
  • English literacy is the basis of all subjects across the curriculum
  • £230k revenue forecast in the next 12 months
  • Founding team of ex-teachers with proven experience of the challenges
Information Due to ongoing discussions with investors, the pitch has been extended and will now close at midnight on Friday 21st April 2017. The company had £145,000 of its SEIS allowance remaining at the start of this raise. This will be allocated to investors on a first come first served basis. Any investments made after that limit has been exceeded will not be SEIS eligible but will potentially be eligible for EIS. The potential tax relief of any investment will be confirmed by email to investors, after they have submitted their applications to invest, and will depend on an investor's individual circumstances.

Idea

In 2014, two English teachers in London were tearing their hair out. Their students were struggling to understand curriculum texts and express their excellent ideas. These two teachers set about building a programme that would help students improve their vocabulary and reading skills.

Bedrock is an online resource that teaches students the language they need to succeed at school, through a series of interactive and varied activities.

Each word is woven into our own original text, ensuring students read regularly as well. Inbuilt assessment feeds data back to the teacher, enabling them to easily track progress.

We launched 18 months ago and have sold to 29 schools in the UK, Canada and Asia. 12,000 students are now improving their English using Bedrock. Since launch, our user base has grown, on average, by 85% per quarter.

The Edtech market continues to grow and is set to be worth over $220bn by 2020. Our research suggest that no other company in the UK tackles reading comprehension in the way we do. We believe we are a scalable solution with ambitions to serve 1000 schools by 2020, representing a c.3% share of the market in England and Scotland.

Our mission is to ensure all students leave school with the English language skills required to succeed in life and work. We would love you to support this aim by investing in Bedrock today.
