Sponge Listed as One of the Top 5 UK EdTech Companies.


Sponge has been recognised as one of the most innovative digital learning providers in the UK, placing at number four in the final EdTech ranking for 2022.

We’re delighted to announce that Sponge has placed fourth in Business Cloud’s inaugural ranking of organisations shaping the use of education technology across the UK.

EdTech 50 celebrates the UK’s most innovative startups, scaleups and established firms creating original technology for education and workplace development.  The final ranking was decided through a combination of a 2,200 strong reader votes and the expertise of an independent judging panel. Of the 100 companies nominated, only 50 are selected for a place in the ranking.

At Sponge we’re on a mission to lead the pack in digital learning, to deliver impact-focused learning experiences that our clients genuinely value and our people can be proud of. Placing top five in the ranking is a tremendous achievement - we are honoured to be recognised alongside such an inspiring list of truly pioneering businesses.

Adam Poulter, CEO at Sponge, comments on the award win:

Placing in the top five companies for the Business Cloud EdTech Awards is a fantastic start to the year for Sponge and a testament to the cutting-edge work achieved in partnership with our clients. Where our creativity is so often cited as our core strength, it’s fantastic to be recognised for leading in technology in this competitive and innovative sector. The list is populated by a host of impressive players, so to come fourth is a real win. My thanks go out to the great people that make up Sponge and our valued clients, who are always inspiring us to drive for bigger, better things in learning technologies.

We wouldn’t have made this ranking without our wonderful clients, so if you voted for us in EdTech 50: a big thank you from all of us here at Sponge.
