Although I’ve been maintaining spreadsheets with all ed-tech funding for a couple of years now, I haven’t done a great job making this data in any other formats than 1) my own verbiage or 2) JSON files. As part of the work I will do with my Spencer Fellowship, I’m working to make more of this spreadsheet data power HTML pages.

It’s going to take me a week or so to put all my data in the right format. You can find the repositories I’m working on, as usual, on GitHub. (I’ve set up a new organization for this project: Hack-Education-Data.)

Coming soon: pages detailing ed-tech investments, investors, mergers, acquisitions, and IPOs. For now:

The Ed-Tech Startup Deadpool – that is, all the companies that have gone out-of-business since 2013. RIP.

Obviously this isn’t a complete list, and I’ll add more historical data over time. And once I have a better handle on this whole process, I’ll write out some instructions on how you can contribute to the research and/or re-use the data.
