Education Technology - Executive Summary Q1 2018

Published on: 01/15/2018

The Education Technology (EdTech) industry is displaying all the hallmarks of a healthy merger and acquisition (M&A) market, including robust deal volume, strong valuations and healthy interest from both private equity and strategic buyers.  Interactive learning has developed into an important trend in the EdTech industry because it enables higher concept retention rates than passive teaching methods1.  As a result, companies developing these types of solutions have been sought after acquisition targets.  Examples include the acquisitions of New Valence Robotics (student 3D printers), IS3D (interactive STEM courses) and Motion Math (gamification), all of which were announced in November.
