Is Utah Edtech's Next Home State?


Is Utah Edtech's Next Home State?

Jul 15, 2016

UTAH is playing host to a growing number of edtech startups: PluralSight, MasteryConnect, True North Logic, Agilix, Degreed and the School Improvement Network are all headquartered there. Now this: as of July 15, Utah is home to Zizzle eLearning, which teaches Chinese with pictorial lessons. The company is graduating from the Utah-based Boom Startup accelerator in a cohort made up of entirely edtech companies, according to a press release.

Zizzle CEO Lukas Lohove said of the Beehive State, "Utah is great for us because it has the highest concentration of Chinese immersion programs in the country, and the funding environment seems to be pretty good. All the funds are friendly with one another and collaborate."
