STEVEN KEMLER PROMOTES “TWO SCREENS FOR 

TEACHERS” PROGRAM FOR LOW-INCOME SCHOOLS 

February 3, 2021

New York, NY –- With a donation of 200 monitors to low-income school districts, Steve Kemler, Managing Director of the Stone Arch Group, joined the growing ranks of supporters of school technology initiative Two Screens For Teachers (TSFT). With the COVID-19 crisis accelerating throughout the fall and winter, vast numbers of students and teachers in the United States have been forced into an online learning model like never before. According to TSFT, “a second screen let’s teachers see and interact with their students on one screen, while conducting lesson plans on the other.”  

“Teachers are being challenged to continue to deliver a high quality of learning under extreme circumstances,” said Kemler.  “The technology gap is especially significant in lower income school districts, and Two Screens For Teachers is helping to close that gap. Children’s education has been a focus of the Stone Arch Group, and we encourage others to join in and help.”  

 

Two Screens for Teachers is an independent, fiscally sponsored project of DonorsChoose, a 501©(3) tax exempt organization. Their goal is to distribute 250,000 monitors by February 2021, and they have already helped over 22,000 teachers and over 500,000 students. But there are 180,871 teachers on their waiting list and more aid is needed. Principal Stowell of Greenwood Elementary in Seattle, Washington added, “Second monitors are lifesavers. Imagine teaching 24 students and juggling lesson plans on a 13 inch laptop screen.”

STEVEN KEMLER LAUNCHES STONE ARCH GROUP

Private Investment Initiative 

October 20, 2020

New York, NY –- Stone Arch Group, a family office backed private investment firm, was launched recently by Principal and Managing Director Steven Kemler. Stone Arch invests in residential real estate, tech-enabled businesses with “sticky” recurring revenue and traditional companies that can be restructured / tech-enabled to achieve rapid growth. The firm and its founder also provide meaningful support to non-profit initiatives focusing on climate change mitigation, rainforest protection, education, and children’s welfare.

As a closely held firm, Stone Arch is flexible and nimble in its approach and takes a longer-term view in its investments. The firm provides ‘smart’ capital to help its partners build strong foundations, overcome challenges and refine their business models while still scaling rapidly. 

 

“I’ve been fortunate in my career to have had valuable mentorship and support from trusted business leaders and friends, which has helped me build and exit from several successful businesses,” said Kemler. “By sharing my own experiences, as well as providing strategic resources and capital, I look to help like-minded, talented entrepreneurs achieve a similar level of success.” 

In residential real estate, the firm looks for opportunities with fifty or more units in ‘non-prime’ locations. With private companies, Stone Arch is focused on Series A and B investments and acquisitions and will consider seed rounds for businesses and platforms that have rapidly growing revenue and a proven market fit.
