Fishtree Inc. is a privately held Educational technology company that provides a dynamic, web-based platform enabling Personalized learning at scale for K–12 and Higher education.

Founded: 2012
Headquarters: Chevy Chase, MD
Founders: Jim Butler, Terry Nealon

What Role We Played

  • Helped the company founders first articulate an entirely new approach to personalized learning now broadly known as Learning Relationship Management (LRM) software.
  • Carter Research isolated for the development team the four-part framework of social, mobile, currated, and adaptive content upon which the Fishtree solution hangs today.

Why This Matters

  • We have not yet begun to see the cost-reduction, quality improvement, or outcomes enhancing effects of technology-enabled learning on the delivery of K-12 education as we should have.
  • Literally hundreds of edtech start-ups as well as more mature and more proven companies—some with exequisite learning solutions—languish under the burden of education’s failed market dynamics.
