Since its launch in 2012, Nearpod has seen wide adoption in the K-12 market; currently used in 1 out of 10 schools in the United States by over 100K teachers and 6M students on a monthly basis. 2017 marks the second year in a row that Nearpod has been listed on the Inc. 5000 fastest growing private companies and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Fortune and local news channels across the country.
Nearpod is headquartered in Miami, Florida and is backed by notable investors like Insight Venture Partners, Reach Capital, Storm Ventures, the Stanford StartX Fund, the Knight Enterprise Fund, Arsenal Ventures, as well as Marc Benioff (the CEO of Salesforce) and Scott Cook (founder and Chairman of Intuit) and his wife, Signe Ostby.
