Co.Lab Classmate Kidaptive Raises $10 Million Series B

Kidaptive, an education-gaming startup and one of the first five companies to go through the Zynga-New Schools accelerator Co.Lab, announced today that it has raised a $10.1 million Series B. Formation 8 led the round, backed up by Menlo Ventures and Stanford University’s StartX accelerator. Kidaptive’s first app, Leo’s Pad, uses interactive stories to test kids’ educational development, giving parents data about that growth to help keep them on track. The new funding will finance 25 animated episodes for Leo’s Pad.
