“Edstruments is a critical tool for key decision makers, school leaders in particular, to have the type of impact with students that they want to have. Providing them with really good visibility into how they’re spending their money will naturally prompt them to put more money in the places where it’s going to have the biggest impact.”Markus Mullarkey Chief Operating Officer, Caliber Public Schools
“The Edstruments team has great fluency and understanding of how schools actually work, and is focused on making sure their products meet important needs.

"Edstruments is a thoughtful and intuitive tool for planning and deploying high-impact finance processes in complex organizations. It takes the kinds of budget building and management tools I've built a thousand times with spreadsheets and packages them in an accessible and streamlined interface connected to your books! I highly recommend it!"Chris Cromwell CFO/COO Suite Consultant
I founded Edstruments because I am passionate about increasing equity and outcomes for American students. As a former teacher and TFA alumnus, I saw firsthand that these goals are driven by strong administrators at both the school and district level.
My learnings as a graduate student at Stanford and McKinsey consultant have further cemented my belief that effective resource management plays a critical role in the success of any organization. We are focused on empowering administrators to better carry out their responsibilities.
