Where we are
Quizlet is used by more than 30 million students and teachers each month, on our website, iOS and Android apps. We’re found in classrooms in rounds of Quizlet Live, as part of study sessions at home, and in the hands of learners studying for everything from spelling tests to college-level science classes to professional certifications.
Who we are
Quizlet was started 10 years ago when Andrew Sutherland created a tool to help him study for a high-school French vocabulary quiz. He aced the test, so his friends asked him if 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, we have a fast-growing team of more than 60 employees (and we're hiring), and we’re 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.
