September 11, 2019

Graduway, the global leader in alumni networks and digital career communities for educational institutions and non-profit organizations, today has been named best education technology vendor of 2019 by CIO Applications Magazine.

A mark of industry excellence, CIO Applications’ TOP 25 EdTech Solution Providers Award recognizes companies for their achievements in technology innovation in the field of education. Nominees are evaluated on their ability to produce leading-edge technology that best serves educational institutions and deliver measurable results. The distinguished panel of judges includes CEOs, CIOs, VCs, analysts and CIO Applications’ editorial board.

Graduway, this year’s winner of the Number 1 EdTech Solution Providers Award, has established itself as a thought leader in both the alumni relations and career services industries, developing a category-defining networking platform which provides career guidance for students and engages alumni.

“Being named Number 1 EdTech Provider is a nod to the power of the Graduway platform which is at the heart of supporting students in their career exploration and providing ongoing engagement with alumni, for over 1,000 clients” said Daniel Cohen, Chief Executive Officer of Graduway. “In the coming months we will bolster our core offering and further define our footprint in new markets focusing on the entire relationship lifecycle from prospective student, to student, to alum to donor”. The award follows a recent investment of $60 Million from K1 Investment Management as well as a strategic consolidation of the industry with three acquisitions since the investment. This has cemented Graduway’s position as the world’s largest provider of alumni relationship and career guidance software.

“CIO Applications Magazine shines a spotlight on the companies that are pulling ahead in the education sector. Each year we present the companies that have truly made a mark and propelled the industry forward” said Joe Phillip, Managing Editor of CIO Applications. “Graduway has certainly exemplified a record of innovation and their end-to-end networking platform stands out from other solutions we see on the market today.”
