Simplilearn, an online boot camp for digital economy skills training, has been included in the GSV EdTech 150. This is a list of the world’s most transformative growth companies in digital learning curated by female-led, multi-stage venture capital firm GSV Ventures.
Simplilearn was chosen from over 3,000 venture capital and private equity-backed private companies. GSV estimates that together these 150 companies reach about three billion people, almost half of the global population and generate approximately a revenue of USD 20 billion.
GSV launched the list of education technology leaders in 2020 with the EdTech 50. Due to rapid growth in the sector, due to the global pandemic and continued remarkable technological evolutions, the list increased to 150 in 2021.
In 2022, the sector has shown no signs of slowing down, with the 150 companies selected for the year’s list collectively experiencing revenue growth in the high double digits.
To be in the GSV EdTech 150, companies should meet the following criterias:
- VC or PE-backed companies in digital Learning, excluding public and nonprofit companies
- Companies that have achieved meaningful scale, and primarily, but not exclusively, those that are post-Series A in their development
- Companies experiencing strong, organic top-line growth
Simplilearn’s programmes cover all critical digital domains such as Data & AI, Programming, Cloud & Devops, Agile, Digital Transformation, and Digital Marketing and more than 30 critical digital economy roles in the enterprise with comprehensive learning paths.
These programs are co-created with leading universities like MIT and Caltech and leading industry partners like IBM, Microsoft Azure, and Facebook, to ensure the best learning outcomes.
More than 3 million professionals have been assisted by Simplilearn to upskill themselves in digital technology skills across 150 countries. Simplilearn offers a scalable platform for live interactive workshops and bootcamps in digital skills.
