People who use Quizlet love us
“I love Quizlet! Quizlet has actually inspired me to become a teacher. Quizlet has been so helpful to me. I have become an honor roll student because of it. Thank you Quizlet!”
“If it were not for Quizlet, my limited English and special needs students would not have been as successful in learning and in their state assessments. Quizlet has made learning fun.”
“I've always had trouble in school with learning and being motivated to succeed. Once I found Quizlet, it gave me an easy and fun way to organize my learning style. With the help of Quizlet, I've been able to ace tests!”
Who we are
Quizlet was started 10 years ago when Andrew Sutherland created a tool to help him study for a French vocabulary test. Having aced the test, his friends asked whether they could use the tool too. Friends shared with friends and Quizlet grew - a lot.
More than 10 years later, students have completed more than 3 billion study sessions and we are always looking for new talent to add to our fast-growing team! We're also backed by a great group of investors: Fred Wilson at Union Square Ventures, Greg Sands and Mark Selcow at Costanoa Ventures, Tory Patterson at Owl Ventures, Ho Nam at Altos Ventures and Dave Margulius.
