IO Education honored as a top 50 growth-stage company in education sector achieving impact at scale
ATLANTA – Sept. 13, 2016 – IO Education, the leader in empowering educators through data to improve educational outcomes, has been recognized as a 2016 Tyton Growth50 company. The Tyton Growth50 celebrates innovative organizations achieving impact at scale through a combination of strong financial performance; market awareness and adoption; and demonstrated customer outcomes across the preK–12, postsecondary, corporate training, and consumer education markets. As one of 50 organizations selected this year, this achievement marks a significant milestone in IO Education’s evolution.
“This honor is a tribute to the hardworking staff at IO Education and the educators whose dedication to student success pushes us to be the best partners we can be,” said Michael Williamson, chief executive officer at IO Education. “Being named to Growth50 is a significant milestone for us as we continue to seek new and better ways to utilize data to help educators improve outcomes.”
Each year, experts on the Tyton Partners team review nominated companies in the space, evaluating each against the Tyton Growth Framework to narrow the field. That analysis is used to select the 50 companies that best exemplify the impact, engagement, awareness and sustainability necessary to have lasting impact for their partners.
“Early-stage investment in education remains strong, but we often lose sight of what happens to these companies after initial funding,” noted Adam Newman, Co-founder and Managing Partner at Tyton Partners. “Companies selected for this year’s Tyton Growth50 are exemplars for understanding the transition from early- to growth and later-stage businesses, making that transition successfully and achieving impact at scale across a variety of segments of the education market.”
With IO Education, schools and districts can break down data silos and aggregate state, district, classroom and assessment data to develop a rich understanding of student growth. Learn more at https://ioeducation.com.
