Our Work

Investing for Educational Impact

Voqal aims to educate and engage the public to foster a stronger, healthier democracy.  From our beginnings providing free, instructional video to individuals all over the United States to our more recent efforts supporting innovators in the education space, Voqal has strived to fulfill the mission of the Educational Broadband Service (formerly called Instructional Television Fixed Service) for more than 30 years. Voqal continues to honor this mission through investments in organizations and companies focused on creating a more educated world.

Education Opportunity Project

Voqal believes that the opportunity gap is the most pervasive and damaging problem in the U.S. educational system. We define the opportunity gap as the educational disparity and inequity that exists across racial and class lines and believe it is one of the root causes of rising economic inequality.

Addressing this complex and multi-faceted problem cannot be achieved through any one solution. Innovative solutions that address specific opportunity gap-related problems should be coupled with systemic change initiatives informed through rigorous research and experimentation.

With this reality in mind, the Education Opportunity Project seeks to measurably reduce educational opportunity gaps by providing capital and strategic advice to entrepreneurs and organizations working to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged populations.
