About us

Welcome to Education Stake, the network that connects professionals and service providers in the education industry worldwide.


Our mission is to connect the B2B stakeholders in the global education market.

To achieve this mission, we provide a matching platform for education providers, and education services that functions as follows:

How it works

  1. Education providers can categorize their offers based on specific criteria such as type, target audience, tools, certification, location, expertise, and language, among others.
  2. Education buyers can search for educational solutions based on their specific needs and view services that institutions have designated as available for their requirements and the educational resources they offer. This helps in an efficient procurement process.
  3. Education buyers can create anonymous service requests, to which education providers can respond.
  4. Members can collaborate and share due diligence information/experience with certain providers.

    In addition to the above, Education Stake offers the following features:

  5. Users providing services to the education industry, e.g. Edtech, legal services, financing, etc, can list their offerings, while other users can explore the service provider directory to find the right professionals.
  6. Users can post and search for related jobs and events related to the education sector.
  7. Users can connect and discover each other via the business directory.
  8. Share insights and network with other members.
  9. Participate in the Education Stake Awards Program to acknowledge excellence in the education industry. All Education Stake members are eligible to vote in the program to recognize the winners.
