Education Technology

Published on: 06/26/2014

Merger & acquisition activity in the education technology (“edtech”) industry is increasing at a rapid pace due to a surge of venture capital and private equity activity as well as focused interest from several strategic groups. During 2013, Capstone’s research indicates that 53 edtech transactions were completed, the highest figure in six years. This trend is showing no signs of abating. Through May of 2014, an additional 31 transactions were closed, a pace that would result in a record for the most edtech transactions in a year.
