Dr Wendy Oke, Founder, TeachKloud
In 2017, Dr Wendy Oke took to LinkedIn to voice her frustration at the lack of support available to early childhood teachers. Specifically, Wendy identified that there was a significant gap in the early childhood software market when it came to preparing Preschools, Crèches and Childminders for educational and safety inspections. Wendy’s post garnered significant attention, resulting in a €55,000 investment from an angel investor; and a structure for what would soon become TeachKloud. While pursuing her PhD in early childhood education and care in Cork IT, Wendy founded TeachKloud and in 2019, raised €750,000, from several investors including Frontline Ventures.
