NEW YORK (June 3, 2015)—DreamBox Learning® (www.dreambox.com) announced today that investment banking and strategy consulting firm Tyton Partners designated the company as a Tyton Growth50 Awardee. The Tyton Growth50 Awards highlights outstanding education technology solutions that are reshaping the education culture and contributing to a new and better future for students. Companies were evaluated on a set of attributes including revenue and profitability, rate of customer adoption, and impact on the educational technology marketplace. DreamBox Learning was recognized for its visionary leadership in the instructional technology industry and commitment to developing digital curricula that supports learners of all levels and backgrounds.
Providing students with a personalized learning environment and an intelligent adaptive curriculum that supports the development of critical thinking, strategy application, and problem solving skills, DreamBox Learning builds student competence and confidence in K-8 Math. To maximize the academic impact of the curriculum, DreamBox Learning partners with teachers, helping them transform their role into that of a coach and learning facilitator. Through the use of formative learning analytics, educators are able to gain insights into learning progress and struggles and integrate lessons and digital tools into their classroom practice. Additionally, DreamBox has continued efforts to enhance its teacher professional development offerings across the country in an effort to aid educators with a deeper understanding of math instruction and support transformation in the classroom.
“We are honored to be recognized for our leadership and dedication to sustainable, scaled impact on the education technology sector,” said Jessie Woolley-Wilson, President and CEO at DreamBox Learning. “We strive to consistently deliver meaningful learning experiences, so it’s truly an honor to be recognized as a company demonstrating innovation in the education space that is driving positive outcomes. We look forward to continuing to support teachers and students in their learning journey.”
“The education sector is in the midst of an epic period of investment activity and national discussion. A steady stream of tenacious entrepreneurs and innovative product and service models are emerging, but scaling distribution remains a fundamental challenge. The Tyton Growth50 companies are clearing this hurdle,” said Adam Newman, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Tyton Partners. “We have much to learn from what these organizations are doing to scale their initial innovations.”
DreamBox Learning has experienced tremendous growth, consistently doubling the number of student users year-over-year since 2011. In the 2014-15 school year alone the company is projected to deliver more than 150 million math lessons to students grades K-8 in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Canada. The company continues to meet the needs of additional groups of learners, including the recent addition of middle school curriculum and culturally appropriate Spanish-language content to support English Language Learners on laptops, desktops and iPads in the past year.
The Tyton Growth50 award joins an increasing list of DreamBox Learning achievements this year, including a 2015 CODiE award for “Best PK-12 Personalized Learning Solution” from the Software & Information Industry Association and a Return on Education (ROE) Innovation award for demonstrated impact in education at the 2015 ASU+GSV Education Innovation Summit.
