Former president of Mexico Vicente Fox has joined the board of Canadian education technology company Knowledgehook.
The company said in a press release that Fox hopes to help the company make inroads in Mexico, a country where fewer than half of school children graduate from high school.
Knowledgehook works with math teachers and school administrators using its “instructional guidance system technology.” Knowledgehook currently works with several school systems in Canada, including the fourth largest school district in North America, the Toronto District School Board. The company’s investors include AOL co-founder Steve Case and Boston Scientific co-founder John Abele.
“President Fox’s vision for education, innovation and humanity is aligned with our goal to improve math outcomes in classrooms by supporting math educators on a global scale,” said Travis Ratnam, CEO and Co-Founder of Knowledgehook.
