Our

Story

We are former educators, edtech creators, and innovators with vision for change. Recognizing the challenges our K-12 educators face, paired with a desire for data-driven intelligence to move edtech forward, our team joined forces and launched Veracity in January 2021. With a strong network of believers by our side, Veracity Verifications are being utilized nationwide empowering EVERY educator and enabling informed purchasing and product roadmap decisions.

Our Story

We’re passionate about student success, educators devoted to our children and their futures, and innovators with vision for change. Veracity was formed to connect us all. To help school systems find the right software solutions (while maximizing valuable resources and impact). To help EdTech Providers demonstrate the value of their products (while building trust and empowering faster ROI for school districts). To help students achieve (while all stakeholders focus on one common goal).

Our mission is to empower educators by building a trusted partnership with edtech providers via data-driven feedback and enabling equal and equitable access to a trusted marketplace of edtech solutions. Together, we are building a brighter future for edtech and its impact on K-12 education.
