Twilio social fund backs edtech venture Edovo



Half of US inmates return to prison within three years of release, and education programs significantly reduce the odds of recidivism.

Chicago-based Edovo provides educational content on secure tablets for people in prison, seeking to reduce recidivism. Inmates receive certificates and entertainment options when they complete lessons.

Edovo is currently available to 50,000 of the US’s 1.5 million inmates. Edovo secured a $250,000 investment from cloud communications company Twilio’s non-profit impact fund.

Twilio launched its impact fund last year, pledging 1% of its equity to the fund.
