Applyboard: Connecting students to quality education everywhere
The investment: Teachers’ Innovation Platform (TIP) led a $375 million financing round for ApplyBoard, an EdTech company valued at $4 billion.
Inspired by their own experience of applying to schools overseas, ApplyBoard founders and brothers Martin, Massi and Meti Basiri want to make quality education accessible to students everywhere – and we mean everywhere. In just six short years, they’ve connected 200,000 students in 125 countries to educational opportunities around the world.
ApplyBoard’s technology platform empowers students around the world to access the best education by simplifying the search, application and acceptance process. Built on the fundamental belief that education is a basic right, not a privilege, the Canadian company is on a mission to educate the world by democratizing access to international educational opportunities.
Combining this inspirational purpose with exceptional business savvy, ApplyBoard – named by Deloitte as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in North America – has doubled its employees to more than 1,000 across 25 countries, a number expected to double again in the next two years.
We’re excited to partner with ApplyBoard as it expands its team, grows internationally – and continues to educate the world.
