About this event

Lane Rankin is the Founder and CEO of Illuminate Education, the successful educational technology. Lane’s leadership has been a driving force in Illuminate’s explosive growth from a six-person, two-client startup to the EdTech powerhouse it is today—with its innovative array of products empowering educators across the nation, and impacting over 4.5 million students in 39 states (with a 99.3% client retention rate). 

Early on Lane recognized the transformative power of technology in the classroom—he was often found tinkering with devices and entering data into his fancy Apple Newton™. Indeed, it was this realization that led to the eventual formation of the groundbreaking DataDirector software, and the founding of Illuminate Education in 2009.

Beyond the vision, devotion, and integrity he brings to his role at Illuminate, Lane’s hallmark attributes include an obvious appreciation for his staff, a commitment to continuous improvement, and (most importantly) an unwavering dedication to students and educators.
