EdTech Unicorns - Details

Goals

To complete the blank cells in the EdTech Unicorn spreadsheet, including information on the latest funding round, 2019 valuation, and news articles relative to each company's unicorn status.

Early Findings

This third round of research was able to complete the information for all but a handful of EdTech companies listed on the EdTech Unicorn spreadsheet.
  • Our research found no media articles were found which discuss the company as having achieved unicorn status: BlinkLearning, igetget.com, Voxy, and HuJiang.
  • We were able to find only one media article which notes Huikedu Group's unicorn status, after searching both English- and Chinese-language media.
  • Kramer's Collaborative Classroom is a hardware + software solution set offered by Kramer Electronics; as such, it is not a distinct business and does not have its own funding rounds. Kramer Electronics has no history of funding rounds.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
As this round of research was able to complete the spreadsheet, we recommend further research to identify any additional EdTech unicorns with a valuation of over $1 billion, as well as 3-5 large EdTech companies that can either potentially reach a valuation of $1B in the near future or are considered among the fastest-growing EdTech companies. This will be global in scope. For each company, we will provide its name, website, country, date of the latest funding round, size of the latest funding round, valuation and links to three news articles mentioning that the company has achieved the unicorn status. We will provide the information in the shared spreadsheet.
Additionally, we can also provide the lead investors for the latest funding round of the EdTech Unicorns identified in the spreadsheet in an additional column.
