Milwaukee edtech startup Fiveable, which develops an interactive, live-streaming student tutoring platform, took home $25,000 after pitching at the SoGal Summit & Global Pitch Competition Finals in San Francisco last weekend.
The competition, viewed as the largest startup competition for women and diverse entrepreneurs, is sourced from over 1,700 startup applications from across the world. Amanda DoAmaral, founder and CEO of Fiveable, advanced through the regional rounds, which took place on five continents, and was one of roughly 60 startups to compete for a portion of $600,000 in investment capital.
Fiveable placed in the top 11, DoArmaral shared on her LinkedIn page.
Earlier this year, Fiveable closed on $673,658 from eight investors. The round of funding was led by Northwestern Mutual’s Cream City Venture Capital, the $5 million venture fund of the Milwaukee-based financial management company. Fiveable received the investment from Cream City Venture Capital for being the co-winner of Fall X Pitch, a pitch competition for technology startups during Fall Experiment this past October.
