Amsterdam-based edtech startup Scribbr was acquired by online learning platform Course Hero. This acquisition, in part due to CH’s $395M in funding, has been making waves in the education industry, and for good reason. Scribbr’s innovative approach to academic support and Course Hero’s vast resources and expertise make for a powerful combination.
Scribbr, founded in 2012, offers proofreading and editing services for students and academics, as well as a range of online tools and resources to help students improve their writing skills. With over 600 freelance editors and a presence in more than 70 countries, Scribbr has become a go-to resource for students around the world.
Course Hero, on the other hand, is an online learning platform that provides study resources, tutoring, and on-demand courses to students. Founded in 2006, Course Hero has grown to become one of the most popular education platforms in the world, with over 35 million registered users.
So why did Course Hero decide to acquire Scribbr? According to Andrew Grauer, CEO and co-founder of Course Hero, “Scribbr’s mission to help students succeed academically is perfectly aligned with Course Hero’s mission to empower students to achieve their goals.” By joining forces, the two companies can offer an even more comprehensive set of resources to students around the world.
The acquisition is also a strategic move for Course Hero, as it expands the company’s reach into the European market. “We’re excited to bring Scribbr’s expertise to our platform and continue to grow our international presence,” Grauer added.
Overall, this acquisition is a win-win for both companies and for students around the world. With Scribbr’s innovative approach to academic support and Course Hero’s vast resources and expertise, the future of education looks brighter than ever.
