Our Story

Used by over 15 million students, with more than 400 million pieces of content, StudyBlue is one of the leading crowdsourced learning services to help students succeed in school and beyond. It all started more than a decade ago, when StudyBlue’s founder, Chris Klündt, was a student at the University of Wisconsin. Chris was frustrated with the lack of useful tools available to help students study and collaborate online. He envisioned an online platform in which students could easily study better, together. Steve Wallman, an investor and entrepreneur, shared Chris’ vision and became StudyBlue’s first angel investor. He continues to serve as Chairman of the Board. StudyBlue (then called “theClassConnection”) grew quickly.  Millions of students organically joined StudyBlue, and as the business grew, Chris and Steve recognized the need for an experienced executive to help scale. They reached out to Becky Splitt, a former Microsoft executive. Becky joined as StudyBlue’s first CEO in 2009. StudyBlue continued to grow significantly in Wisconsin, but in 2012 the team recognized the need to join other edTech companies in Silicon Valley, and relocated to San Francisco. In 2014, StudyBlue’s founder, Chris Klündt, stepped into the role of CEO and today continues to lead our mission to help any student learn anything.
