Nearpod to be acquired for $650M


    Renaissance Learning has agreed to buy Dania Beach-based Nearpod for $650 million following a year of significant growth for the South Florida education technology startup.

    The number of students and schools using Nearpod increased significantly as online learning became the norm with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. With the deal, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin-based Renaissance Learning will acquire one of the region’s most successful education technology startups.
