STAMFORD, Conn., June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Activity in the educational technology startup arena remains robust in 2016, even if investment has started off more slowly than in the recent past, according to Simba Information's Ed Tech Startup Dashboard 2015-2016, the most recent edition in the quarterly series Simba began more than one year ago.
"What the first five months of 2016 have demonstrated is that strong investment activity in 2015 is bearing fruit in 2016 with product releases, forging of new distribution channels and expansion of company vision," said Kathy Mickey, managing editor and senior analyst for the Education Group at Simba Information.
The Ed Tech Startup Dashboard 2015-2016 looks at the highlights of the fourth quarter of 2015, reviews the overall year in 2015 and takes an initial look at 2016 activity through the end of May 2016. The report looks at who is investing in what in both the K-12 school and higher education segments, the educational areas that are capturing the most attention and how initial business plans often are reformulated on the way to an envisioned endgame.
Demands for transformation of institutional models in higher education and the migration to digital in K-12 are continuing to create a welcoming climate for ed-tech startups, the report concludes.
