We’re building great learning tools
for every student on the planet.

Our mission

Every person on earth deserves access to free, powerful, and inspiring learning tools - and our mission is to build them.

Quizlet’s free study tools are used by millions of students and teachers every day in every country of the world (196 if you’re counting) – from grade school to grad school to language learners to vocational students. We build learning tools that let any level student improve their performance immediately.

Quizlet started in 2005 when the then 15-year-old Andrew Sutherland created it to help him study for a high-school French class. He shared it with his friends, and it grew from there. This is why Quizlet focuses on providing the tools—and lets learners provide the curriculum. It also means Quizlet works with any existing educational system or learning style.

We’ve met a few milestones in the 10 years since:

  • 1 billion study sessions viewed
  • 100 million study sets created by Quizlet users
  • 1 in every 4 high school students in the U.S. uses Quizlet daily; 40 million users come to Quizlet every month

We build tools everyone can use

The best study tools should work for any curriculum, any level user, any teacher or student, anywhere in the world. We listen obsessively to our users, reading thousands of suggestion emails a week and doing everything we can to improve Quizlet. Our engineers visit classrooms regularly, and everyone on the Quizlet team talks to students and teachers to see Quizlet in action.

We work hard to make everything easy and engaging because we believe learning only happens if people want to make the time. Learning needs to be fun.

We help medical students learn anatomy, Spanish students learn verbs, US diplomats prepare for language exams, Whole Foods employees learn vegetable codes, and ski school instructors pass their certifications. We’ve had users start with us as high school students, then go on to become teachers and bring Quizlet back to their students. We’re here for lifelong education.

We’re just getting started

Our tools are designed for the digital age, not just replacing paper predecessors (flashcards, matching games, etc), but using the best of new mobile and audio technologies to create new kinds of learning tools and games. And beyond tools for practice and recall, we’ve also added tools that focus on longer term learning and mastery for every level learner.

Quizlet is also backed by some of the best in the business. Its investors include: Union Square Ventures (USV), Costanoa Venture Capital, Owl Ventures and Altos Ventures.
