A Rockville, Md.-based startup wants to bring big data into the education sector, the Washington Post reports.
Steven Overly writes angel investors gave $650,000 to Always Prepped to start a new website for teachers to track attendance and academic performance, using aggregated data from databases.
Founder Fahad Hassan told Overly the company changed its approach nine months ago from being a website for students to practice math problems, as educators already had online tools.
Another big data startup, the Reston, Va.-based Zoomdata, wants executives to view big data on mobile devices via charts, graphics and illustrations.
Founder Justin Langseth told the Post the company raised $1.1 million last week from 10 local angel investors and institutions.
