Civitas Learning has raised $4.1 million in funding to launch a new data analysis service to help college students succeed.
The Austin-based startup launched in late May and is working with community colleges, four-year universities and other schools.
Civitas Learning combines student demographic, behavioral, and academic information with the latest analysis and recommendation technologies, and sophisticated data modeling approaches to help students make academic decisions.
Austin Ventures led its investment round along with First Round Capital, and Floodgate.
Charles Thornburgh, a former senior executive at Kaplan, Inc. founded Civitas Learning.
Civitas Learning is working with more than a dozen institutions, including Austin Community College and University of Maryland University College.
