As part of Sumeru’s education technology theme, we first met GoGuardian in 2017 and were impressed by the highly innovative product and the strong founding team addressing digital learning shifts in K-12.
Sumeru believed that GoGuardian’s strong operating metrics across growth, customer retention and profitability were differentiated in the EdTech space, and invested in the company in 2018.
GoGuardian’s management rolled a significant equity stake, creating a well-aligned organization ready to deliver on its mission as a premier K-12 teacher and student learning platform.
GoGuardian and Sumeru collaborated on a product roadmap designed to strengthen core offerings and introduce new products for an increasingly dynamic digital learning environment.
The Company’s go-to-market structure positioned it to meet demand through both direct and indirect sales channels, with Sumeru lending insights to build a multi-modal GTM strategy with strong SaaS KPIs at-scale.
Sumeru worked closely with GoGuardian’s CEO and CTO to build a scalable management team and Board for long-term market leadership. Sumeru also worked on multiple strategic acquisitions that strengthened the platform’s student engagement and assessment technologies.
In July 2021, GoGuardian announced a $200 million strategic investment from Tiger Global, valuing the business at over $1 billion and providing the Company with additional capital to accelerate its mission in bringing more effective learning solutions to schools worldwide.
