EdSurge is the leading site for educators, entrepreneurs and investors involved in education technology. We help educators discover the best products for their students; we inspire developers to build what educators and learners need; we help investors understand the emerging market.
EdSurge is regularly cited as the most influential brand for education technology news and information. EdSurge hosts the most comprehensive database of edtech products, companies, and topics online in addition to more traditional daily reporting of news in the education technology ecosystem.
Alongside their online presence, EdSurge hosts the largest education technology meetup in the US, EdSurge is also making inroads into school systems, through partnerships with districts such as New York City's Department of Education.
The organization itself is operated as a technology-journalism hybrid, employing equal parts technologists and journalists. Their goal is to promote the smart adoption of education technology through impartial reporting on products and news, online community building and services, and local events.
EdSurge is funded through grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as a seed investment from The Washington Post Co, NewSchools Venture Fund, and directors from Allen & Co.
