WilmerHale Counsels Nearpod in Securing $21M Series B Funding

Firm News

Nearpod, an education tech startup, announced that it has secured $21 million for its Series B funding round to continue to help teachers incorporate software and content into their day-to-day instruction. 

Teachers use Nearpod to create interactive lessons, virtual field trips and quizzes that are distributed live to students' mobile devices in the classroom. Currently, the startup offers about 3,500 lessons and plans to develop more proprietary digital content for its library with this funding.

The WilmerHale deal team representing Nearpod was led by Daniel Zimmermann and included John Lee, Richard Lee, Cynthia Moon, William Caporizzo, Leah Segal and Scott Kilgore.
