Demme Learning, an independent publisher of educational products, will take on KinderTown’s team of two remote staffers, but Welch will leave the company’s operations to focus on DreamIt Ventures.

“My focus right now is helping absorb the enormous growth we have seen at DreamIt over the last year,” Welch said in an email to Technical.ly Philly. “With each cycle the number and quality of application is increasing as our brand gets stronger.  I want to make sure we continue to capitalize on this opportunity.”
