K-12 Dealmaking: Math Tutoring Firm Acquires AI Ed-Tech Startup; Former U.S. Education Secretary Joins Media Literacy Company’s Advisory Board

Apr 28, 2020

Even as the coronavirus shut down schools and pushed learning online, deals are still getting done and investments are still being made in education companies. In recent news, an AI-driven math tutoring company acquired an AI-based ed-tech startup. Two Indian ed-tech startups secure a combined $7.6 million in new investments. And an Irish company that provides speech recognition technology secures $6.5 million in a Series A round. Thinkster Math acquires SelectQ Corp., an artificial intelligence-guided ed-tech startup. Kendall Park, New Jersey-based Thinkster Math has acquired Silicon Valley-based AI-driven ed-tech startup SelectQ Corp. , Thinkster announced in a press release . “With the acquisition, Thinkster will transform from a tutoring company to a hyper-personalized knowledge acceleration platform company that caters to any educational content,” the statement said. Thinkster provides real-time, data-driven learning, and digital benefits for students, tutors, and parents, according to the company. With the acquisition, Thinkster will add content across grade levels, including honors and Advanced Placement-level STEM subjects, as well as competitive test preparations such as SAT and ACT courses. The company will also expand services to additional English-speaking regions such as the United Kingdom, India, Australia, as well as countries where the use of English is growing, like Brazil. Ramesh Panuganty, founder of SelectQ, will join Thinkster’s board of directors. The companies “aim to displace” traditional brick-and-mortar tutoring companies, and become the world’s largest content aggregator, they said. “Combining AI with the human intelligence of tutors, our offering brings the best tutors, data-driven insights and content to students to improve their learning, to enhance their analytical skills and to build a strong foundation—all at affordable price points,” Thinkster CEO Raj Valli said in a statement. Dublin-based SoapBox Labs gets $6.5 million in Series A funding from several investors. SoapBox Labs , a developer of speech recognition technology for kids, on April 21 announced a $6.5 million Series A investment by Dublin-based venture capital firm Elkstone Capital , San Francisco-based venture capital firm Astia , and several private investors. “We’ve invested deeply over the last seven years in our people and our technology,” SoapBox founder Patricia Scanlon said in a statement. “With this funding we’re poised to capitalize on our strengths and the global market opportunities opening up to us in literacy, language learning and toys.” Wired UK named SoapBox one of Europe’s hottest startups in 2019. The company’s voice technology powers third-party digital games, literacy, and English language learning offerings for children. “Astia has been an investor in SoapBox Labs since 2017,” Astia CEO Sharon Vosmek said in a statement. “We’re pleased to participate in this new funding round that positions the company for international growth.” Former U.S. Education Secretary joins advisory board of media literacy company. Arne Duncan, who served as U.S. education secretary from January 2009 to December 2015, has joined the global advisory board of NewsGuard , a company that hosts a media literacy platform used by libraries and educators from middle school to the university level. Duncan currently works as a managing partner at social impact firm Emerson Collective , where he co-founded Chicago CRED—Creating Real Economic Diversity—an anti-gun violence organization that aims to transform Chicago’s south and west side communities. Before he was U.S. education secretary, Duncan was CEO of Chicago Public Schools. “It’s wonderful to participate in this timely initiative to equip youth with critical research and source evaluation skills,” Duncan said in a statement. “NewsGuard offers an effective approach to tackling the lack of media literacy skills among young people globally, and I’m delighted to help move its efforts forward.” Advisory board members provide strategic advice to NewsGuard. India-based startup Vedantu raises $6.8 million from a South Korean investor. Bangalore, India-based ed-tech startup Vedantu raised $6.8 million from Seoul-based KB Global Platform Fund in a Series C funding round, Inc42 reported . Founded in 2014, Vedantu is an online tutoring company that offers live instruction, including individual and group sessions, to students in grades 6-12. Earlier this month, Vedantu raised $12.5 million in a funding round led by Beijing-based Legend Capital . Vendantu saw 10 times the average number of people sign up for the service in the first week after it opened up its platform for free to students on March 12, as remote learning was being implemented in many countries’ K-12 school systems amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Vedantu CEO and co-founder Vamsi Krishna told Inc42. India-based startup GUVI raises $789,600. Chennai, India-based GUVI has raised over $789,000 in a pre-Series A round of funding from Education Catalyst Fund, an education-focused venture capital fund based in India, Economic Times reported .

GUVI CEO SP Balamurugan told Economic Times in a statement that the company will use raised capital to scale up operations, introduce newer courses in vernacular languages and expand the geographical presence for its blended learning program. The company is experiencing a surge of online users during the COVID-19 crisis, and expects that trend to continue, Balamurugan told Economic Times. See also:
