Scott Reiman Supports Organizations Making an Impact

Colorado Impact FundScott Reiman and his firm Hexagon supports organizations that foster local business and emerging business leaders throughout Colorado. The Colorado Impact Fund (CIF) does just that, and more.

The CIF is a Denver-based equity fund that supports Colorado companies that generate a positive impact – both on their communities and in consistent investment returns.

The Fund invests in areas of community health, education and workforce development, natural resource conservation and economic development. It supports female and minority entrepreneurs and core industries in Colorado that hold exemplary best practices.

Funded by Colorado investors, exclusively for Colorado companies, this private equity fund provides entrepreneurs with cost-efficient capital and a network of strategic business advisors.

Since its inception in 2014, the fund has invested in 10 companies to develop and expand throughout Colorado. Together, these companies employ 648 individuals and have created 161 new jobs. Their business leadership is diverse with 50% having female founders and 20% having minority founders. These companies are also located in emerging communities where 70% are headquartered in low to middle income areas.

From empowering teachers, administrators and school-community stakeholders to boost educational outcomes with Schoolrunner, to improving cost efficiency and patient satisfaction with the healthcare system through Cirrus MD, every organization in the CIF portfolio is able to leverage the capital provided by the Fund to ultimately give back and make an impact on their community and beyond.

  • Bhakti
  • Chocolove
  • Galvanize

Schoolrunner empowers schools to improve student achievement

Schoolrunner
Schoolrunner is a Denver-based company that provides schools with an all-in-one data system to track various student measurables.

Imagine a tool that offers schools and its teachers insight into everything they care about with their students while providing them with more time in the classroom. Denver-based Schoolrunner does just that.

This all-in-one student data system allows educators to track grades, academic standards, attendance, behavior and family contact information. It integrates with the school’s existing Student Information System (SIS) and provides resources to help with analysis of the collected data through graphs, pivot tables and dashboards. Teachers can also set up logins for students so they can track their own progress.

Launched in 2012, Schoolrunner focuses on helping schools foster strong communities centered on actionable data. Currently, the platform serves more than 50,000 students in 50-100 schools around the country.

The program is supported by the Colorado Impact Fund, which encourages local community involvement through Colorado companies.

The Reiman Foundation and Hexagon, Inc. supports the Fund and programs like Schoolrunner that aim to provide educators with the tools they need to better serve students in their classroom room and improve student success.
