Paragin, an education technology software provider offering services for the development of competency and talent of students and professionals, has partnered with mathematics software specialist, SOWISO. Paragin is backed by software investor Main Capital Partners.

SOWISO provides an innovative learning platform concentrated on educational subjects including science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The partnership is the first add-on acquisition for Paragin in its buy-and-build strategy since its collaboration with Main in 2021. The two firms hope to build the platform into a market leader across Europe.

“In Paragin, we have secured a partner who shares our values and our vision for putting the student first in all we do,” added Marc Habbema, CEO at SOWISO. “We will combine our innovative solutions to further support the needs of the educational landscape. We felt a true connection with the Paragin management team from the beginning of this process and we are very excited about this partnership moving forward.”

“For many years, SOWISO has been a front runner in mathematics related learning and assessments,” said Jeroen Bakker, CEO at Paragin. “We are thrilled to embark on the next chapter of exciting growth together with SOWISO. There is much to be learned from each other in how we best serve our respective international customer bases. We also share many core values. First and foremost, we both always seek to act in the best interests of the student. With a combined product proposition, we can truly offer tremendous value for our customers and look forward to unearthing new ways to add even greater value together.”
