Cambium Learning Group Named to GSV EdTech 150
List recognizes most transformational companies in Education Technology.
Cambium Learning was chosen from 2,000 venture capital and private equity-backed companies across several factors evaluated on their revenue scale, revenue growth, active learner reach, international reach, and margin profile. GSV estimates that these 150 companies together reach approximately 3 billion people — close to half of the global population — and generate approximately $20 billion in revenue.
GSV launched its inaugural list of leaders in education technology in 2020 with the EdTech 50, and with rapid growth in the sector, increased this year’s list to 150.
“Over the past year, Cambium has been fortunate to see tremendous growth across all of our business units as we strived to share our products and services with both students and educators who needed them most,” said John Campbell, CEO of Cambium Learning. “It is an honor to be recognized by GSV as a company that is transforming the edtech industry during such a pivotal time in education.”
“Congratulations to Cambium Learning Group for being selected for the GSV EdTech 150,” said Deborah Quazzo, managing partner of GSV. “When we launched the EdTech 50 last year, none of us knew the impact that a global pandemic would bring to education. COVID-19 brought 1.6 billion learners online overnight, ushering in the dawn of digital learning, and those we recognize today certainly met the moment. Cambium Learning Group has responded to unprecedented demand and growth with what GSV calls Weapons of Mass Instruction — and we look forward to seeing what you do next.”
To arrive at its listing, GSV evaluated companies across several factors:
- VC or PE-backed private companies in Digital Learning, excluding companies that are public or have filed to be public
- Companies that are post-Series A in their development with the exception of bootstrapped companies that have achieved meaningful scale with $10+ million in revenue
- Organic top-line growth at over 30%
The selection is determined by GSV’s internally-developed scoring system that applies scores across several KPIs including revenue scale, revenue growth, active learner reach, international reach and margin profile.
