Boston-based ed-tech company Ellevation Education has recently received a funding round from North Atlantic Capital. The funding will allow Ellevation to expand its sales and marketing team and increase spending on product offerings.

Ellevation Education is a leading provider of English Language Learning (ELL) software solutions for school districts throughout the United States. Ellevation helps educators solve three major challenges: the management of an ELL program, including data analysis and compliance; collaboration among classroom teachers to better serve students; and strategies to differentiate instruction, tied to student data, that are inclusive of language supports and instructional resources.

“It is important to us that we find great partners with excitement for building an outstanding and sustainable business,” said Jordan Meranus, Ellevation CEO. “North Atlantic Capital is just that, and we are very much looking forward to working together.”

North Atlantic’s Managing Director David Coit, who led the investment, said, “Well designed software tools can help ease the administrative burden on educators, and Ellevation is leading the way in the ELL sector. The company has experienced impressive growth while providing valuable tools for educators who need help with the many challenges of serving the rapidly growing ELL population.” North Atlantic joins existing investors Reach Capital, Rethink Education, and other private investors in supporting Ellevation and its experienced and motivated team.
