Kahoot!'s platform and easy-to-use features not only attract educators and students but reach beyond the classroom to corporate powerhouses, sporting and cultural events, and any social and learning context.

Here are some additional growth metrics from the Kahoot! platform since 2013:

110 million kahoots have been played on the platform so far, including from a library of 15 million public kahoots.

More than 2 million K-12 teachers in the U.S. have signed up for Kahoot! and 21 million (more than a third) of U.S. K-12 students use Kahoot! on a monthly basis.

"We're over the moon at Kahoot! with the sheer passion and drive from the community of educators and students who believe in our mission of making learning more awesome and fun," said Erik Harrell, CEO, Kahoot!.

With that in mind, we are investing in the development of additional game formats, our mobile application, and in new features for brands, publishers and audiences in the Kahoot! game space."
