Toptal consultant unlocks 250% revenue growth for UK-based EdTech company with breakthrough go-to-market strategy

Challenge: Expanding into international markets unlocks new opportunities—and just as many challenges. Although a UK-based EdTech company had successfully launched its day care administration platform in certain markets, the brand struggled to find footing in the Americas.

Impact: Toptal’s strategy consulting services enabled the company to expand throughout the Americas, unlocking 250% revenue growth within a year. The company now operates in over 1,000 global facilities, with Latin America now representing the client’s largest market by revenue.
