Zen educate is an online marketplace that algorithmically matches schools with the best available teachers.
Zen Educate's mission is to change the world of education recruitment.
Zen Educate was founded in 2016 by Slava Kremerman and Oren Cohen. The company is based in London, London, with an additional office in Manchester, UK.
Zen Educate's online platform uses proprietary software to perform an extensive series of checks during the teacher sign-up process to ensure all professionals listed are thoroughly vetted before a final manual review of each profile.
Zen Educate provides a secure one-stop shop to solve a school’s staffing needs, and teachers with information they need to work at each location and ways to communicate and manage relationships with the schools.
Zen Educate claims to have already saved the U.K. education sector £10 million ($11 million) on “wasted recruitment agency fees.”
Zen Educate is backed by Brighteye Ventures, Adjuvo, Ascension Ventures, Simon Rogerson, Chris Hulatt, former Chief Executive at the NCTL, and others. The company raised £19.3 million ($21M) in an exteions of Series A round on Oct 13, 2022. This brings Zen Educate's total funding to $34M to date.
