COLUMBIA, Md. (March 25, 2024)respectTEDCO, Maryland’s economic engine for technology companies, announced a successful exit of the portfolio company Allovue, Inc., a Baltimore, Md.-based, fintech company. Allovue, Inc. was acquired by PowerSchool. 

In 2013, the company received a $100,000 Seed Fund investment from TEDCO to support the growth and development of the company’s K-12 finance software and services.

By acquiring this entity PowerSchool is expanding their data and analytics capabilities, allowing for furthered support for K-12 organizational effectiveness, according to PowerSchool

Exits create impactful returns for startups and investors, as well as more broadly supporting a positive outlook for the entrepreneurial community.
