Degreed acquires European education startup Gibbon

Degreed, a startup promising to “jailbreak the college degree,” announced today that it has acquired Gibbon.

Degreed offers tools for tracking lifelong learning and earning additional credentials. Gibbon, meanwhile, is supposed to help you learn by curating and sharing playlists of learning-related content.

“Hands down, Gibbon has built the most elegant tool for curating your learning,” said Degreed founder David Blake in an emailed statement. “We are excited to add the strength of the Gibbon team to Degreed as well as the elegance of their approach to the Degreed platform. ”

The acquisition price was not disclosed. While Degreed is headquartered in San Francisco, the Gibbon office in Leiden, Netherlands will become its first international location.
