What is Knewton? At Knewton, we believe each student is unique & that their knowledge is not defined by their last answer. Sometimes what a student needs at any moment may not be the next lesson in their textbook. Teachers, schools & education companies use Knewton solutions to adapt to each student's unique needs with tailored recommendations. Join us to help students have a more positive educational experience.
What have we accomplished since opening our doors in 2008? We've built an adaptive learning API that has delivered more than 15 billion (that's right, billion) personalized recommendations to over 14 million students on every continent (okay, except Antarctica). We are building on the success of our recently-launched Alta product to deliver educational software to colleges & universities across the country. We're headquartered in NYC with offices in London & Tokyo. Investments top $150M from well-known angel investors plus Accel, Bessemer, First Round Capital, Firstmark, Founders Fund, GSV & Atomico.
