Learning House Earns Place on the 2015 Tyton Growth50 as a Top Growth-Stage Company in Education

Online Higher Education Technology Provider Chosen for Its Commitment to Innovation and Uncompromising Excellence in the Education Sector

LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2015) - The Learning House, Inc., a leading cloud-based technology provider of solutions that enable universities to thrive in today's dynamic education landscape, has been recognized as a 2015 Tyton Growth50 company. The Tyton Growth50 celebrates innovative organizations that are achieving impact at scale and achieving a combination of strong financial, customer penetration, and brand awareness performance. As one of 50 organizations included on the list, this achievement marks a great milestone in Learning House's evolution.

Learning House has seen tremendous growth over the past year. In addition, Learning House recently acquired two technology-based companies: The Software Craftsmanship Guild and Acatar. The Software Craftsmanship Guild, now known as The Software Guild, offers immersive 12-week coding bootcamps to students in Akron, Ohio; St. Paul, Minn.; and, soon, Louisville, Ky. Acatar, developed by researchers at Carnegie Innovations, an affiliate of Carnegie Mellon University, applies science-based principles on effective teaching and course design to work with faculty to develop their courses for technology-enhanced delivery.

"Higher education is in the midst of a revolution," said Todd Zipper, CEO of Learning House. "No longer is the only option learning in a brick-and-mortar classroom, earning a four-year degree. Online education, MOOCs, badges, bootcamps, nanodegrees and competency-based learning are all changing how and where we learn. Learning House is pleased to be a part of helping colleges and universities adapt to this changing landscape."

This is the inaugural year for the Tyton Growth50, a list curated by Tyton Partners senior professionals, who have several decades of deep transactional and advisory experience. The team assessed hundreds of companies to arrive at the list of finalists. The Growth50 organizations were announced at the Tyton Education Summit in New York City on June 2, an event that convenes a diverse set of entrepreneurs and established companies, investors and foundations, and K-12 and postsecondary institutions from across the education sector to engage in substantive discussions about the mission-critical issues facing the space.

"The education sector is in the midst of an epic period of investment activity and national discussion. A steady stream of tenacious entrepreneurs and innovative product and service models are emerging, but scaling distribution remains a fundamental challenge. The Tyton Growth50 companies are clearing this hurdle," said Adam Newman, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Tyton Partners. "We have much to learn from what these organizations are doing to scale their initial innovations."
