We build companies with disruptive web and mobile technologies that are transforming education.

BES employs an innovative “studio model,” in which we primarily build our own products/companies and also make highly selective, complementary, external seed-stage investments. BES is led by Don Burton who has more than two decades of experience in educational innovation.
