The Washington, D.C.-based education venture helps two-year degree students transfer into four-year programs through its American Honors network of community colleges.

Quad Learning’s Phil Bronner started the company in 2012 so students could pursue four-year degrees more affordably by starting in lower-cost community colleges. It has four community college partners in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York and Washington state.

In 2015, Quad launched an app to help students and academic advisors manage students’ progress. The company is also helping universities recruit international students, according to its website.

Quad has raised over $43 million in debt and equity, including it’s latest funding, according to SEC data.
