Educations.com Media Group (EMG), parent company of Findcourses.co.uk,
has once again been selected as one of the fastest growing and most innovative
e-learning companies in Europe. The EdTech 20 ranking is organised by education
technology company Edxus Group in partnership with specialist media investment
advisory firm IBIS capital.
“We were extremely proud when we received this award last
year. To win it twice in a row is just fantastic!”, says Mattias Säker, CEO of EMG’s
further education business unit, FindCourses Global.
Evaluated in terms of their growth and innovation potential,
the 2014 entries to EdTech Europe ranking were received from over 100 companies
from across 15 European countries. Of these, 20 were shortlisted and named the
frontrunners in the European education technology landscape by an expert panel
including representatives from Pearson, TSL and Emerge Education.
EMG is one of just three companies to have received the
award for the second year running.
The goal behind the awards is to highlight and promote key
players in the education technology arena, shedding light on new trends and how
these affect Europe’s ability to compete in the global market. In 2014, the
most notable of these are the rise of the virtual classroom, language learning
and tools for enhancing workplace and
professional industry training. FindCourses Global continues to work on
this front, developing an expanding portfolio of web-based resources focused on
helping professionals an HR departments across all industries find the right
professional development solutions for their needs. These include a number of
country-specific course search engines – including Findcourses.co.uk – as well
as online advice & guidance services and the tailor-made corporate training
procurement solution referred to as FindCourses PRO.
Educations.com Media Group operates across Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark,
