Founded in 1985, Boxlight, a US owned and operated company, quickly became a leader in presentation technology, climbing Inc. 500 lists and becoming synonymous with projection and display solutions for business, government, and education. After taking over Boxlight’s US and worldwide operations in 2009, Hank and Sunshine Nance focused the company on the education industry.
Mimio was founded in 1997 by way of five creative-thinking students at MIT. They saw that students were so busy taking notes, they weren’t able to pay attention to the actual class. They believed there had to be a better way. By combining innovation with their passion for education, they created their flagship product, the ink capture system. Their passion for creating leading-edge technologies that fuel learning has been integral to their mission from day one.
In 2016, Boxlight acquired Mimio. Together they are a leading global provider of technology in the classroom. The partnership enables Boxlight to bring to today’s education market powerful, integrated solutions that are unmatched. But even more inspiring is where their combined passion for learning will take educational technology, classroom educators, and students in the years ahead.
In line with Boxlight’s commitment to deliver innovative, research-based software solutions, the company acquired Qwizdom in 2018. The combined emphasis on collaborative software to improve classroom outcomes created a win-win partnership for both companies while supporting Boxlight’s efforts as a global leader of interactive technologies.
In 2018, Boxlight acquired EOS Education, a consulting and professional development company for the K-12 education market. With this acquisition, Boxlight extends its commitment to schools and districts by providing a rich portfolio of classroom training, professional development, and educator certification services.
Additionally, Boxlight expanded its offerings to include educational programming and robotics solutions in 2019 by acquiring Modern Robotics, Inc., developers of the innovative MyBot robotics program. Through the cohesive software platform and innovative robots, this solution helps students from pre-school to high school develop skills and a passion for programming and robotics.
