Forsa’s award follows the recent announcement that Savvas Learning Company has been named to the 2023 GSV 150, ASU+GSV’s list of the world’s most transformative private companies in education. Savvas was chosen from more than 4,000 private companies revolutionizing the world of education technology, from Pre-K-12 to workforce learning. These companies were evaluated on five criteria — revenue scale, revenue growth, active learner reach, international reach, and margin profile — to determine the global GSV 150 list. In addition to these two honors, Forsa has also been chosen to speak at the 2023 ASU+GSV Summit, which will be held in San Diego in April.
