Crimson Education

The Judges found that Crimson Education is a young and energetic company founded from the ideas of two outstanding individuals, delivering huge value to students in New Zealand and around the world, by tutoring, mentoring and assisting with developing their educational capabilities, beyond what many would have thought as possible.

The capability and vision of the organisation is shared across the company, with a real focus on helping students achieve their very best.  Strong funding sources from New Zealand and overseas have helped this enterprise, with a funding round in October last year generating US$ 30 million.  This is an incredible growth and success story already for an organisation just a few years old.

Neither an official of Crimson Education nor Sharndre Kushor was present at the Awards Ceremony. Hence Yenti Kushor (Sharndre’s sister) received the Awards. She is seen here with Jacinda Ardern and Bill English
