Avolta acted as sole financial advisor to Educlever group on its sale to Editis – part of the Vivendi group. Avolta Partners is proud of Educlever’s renewed trust after advising the company on its Series A in 2016.

Educlever is a pioneering French EdTech in the digital education and training markets for learners, teachers and trainers. Listed as one of the 500 artificial intelligence French nuggets by France Digitale, the Educlever group’s services include platforms such as Maxicours, Enseigno, Orthodidacte or Le Robert Certification. The company relies on strong expertise in adaptive learning, an innovative technology using artificial intelligence to build personalized learning paths.

Editis, a leading French publishing group and subsidiary of Vivendi, is strengthening its ambition to become a key player in digital transformation, education and training. Following the investment in Meet in Class, and the creation of the educational channel Nathan TV jointly with Canal +, the integration of Educlever will lead to numerous technological, commercial and marketing synergies.

This acquisition is another landmark transaction for Avolta in the Edtech industry, having recently advised EEMI on its acquisition by ISTEC, Diplomeo on its acquisition by HelloWork, or Student Pop on its fundraising with Impact Partners and Educapital.
