Student admissions and marketing platform Element451 announces growth equity funding led by Blueprint Equity to further accelerate the growth of its full journey, student-centered engagement platform. Blueprint Equity is a technology-focused growth equity firm focused on investing in and building market-leading enterprise software and technology-enabled services businesses.

“We are excited to help elevate Element451 into this next chapter of growth. We believe that their innovative work will continue to transform higher ed as they have done in tandem with their partner institutions since inception,” said Bobby Ocampo, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Blueprint Equity.
