Venture capitalists make a big deal over education

How to Use this Graphic:

Venture capitalists are pouring money into educational technology. If last year's numbers are any indication, the amount of spending could double to more than $2 billion in 2014. 

The above graphic uses data from the NewSchools Venture Fund, a public charity that invests in educational technology.  The Fund estimates that $452 million was invested in the category in 2013.

Each bubble represents one of 116 deals that NewSchools documented in 2013.  The bigger the bubble, the bigger the investment.  The biggest deals are colored green, middle-sized deals yellow and the smallest deals read.  You can read more about each of the deals by clicking on the bubble.
