OUR MODEL

Entangled Studios is an education innovation studio based in San Francisco. Our studio combines three areas of work:
we CREATE purpose-built companies and nonprofits de novo.
we PARTNER with universities, foundations, companies and nonprofits who need fresh approaches to innovate, grow and accelerate change.
we INVEST in early stage companies aligned with our areas of expertise: postsecondary education, workforce development and career-long learning.
We work across boundaries to harvest insights and unlock capacities of the people and organizations poised to accelerate innovation and foster equity in education. And we don’t split education into separate categories—we’re experts in how learners continuously weave life, work and learning together.

CREATE

The best way to understand the future is to create it.

Inspired by on-the-ground insight from Entangled.Solutions we fill unmet marketplace needs by creating purpose-built companies and nonprofit organizations. We then pair internal start-up teams with capital, business-building infrastructure, and access to a network of initial customers and domain experts.

ReUp

There are 30 million college dropouts in the United States. ReUp was developed to end that crisis. Armed with the insight that students drop out based on a myriad of complex and interrelated personal challenges—financial, social, and academic—ReUp created a complete solution driven by individualized one-on-one coaching augmented by technology.

Quality Assurance Standards Board

Higher Education accreditation has long focused on the inputs to the educational process rather than student outcomes. The Board was created to enable outcomes-based accountability across accredited and unaccredited programs. It maintains quality assurance standards around student outcomes , enabling auditors to verify claims based on learning outcomes, completion, satisfaction, placement, and earnings.

Practice

Practice was created to solve the accelerating skills gap crisis. Helping learners move from passive “check the box” learning to active skill building learning, Practice dramatically improves the competence and confidence of learners in schools, nonprofits, and companies through its patented learning pedagogy and video technology.

Matterfund

Commissioned by the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council on Education, Matterfund’s goal is to bring international education development out of the Dark Ages. The first real-time graph intelligence platform for international education development, Matterfund bridges massive global funding gaps and helps deliver quality education universally.

Martellus Education

Working with universities across the country, Entangled sees firsthand the challenges leaders face as they navigate tighter budgets, fewer resources, and increasing pressure for accountability.
