Safari was founded in 2001, as a joint venture between O’Reilly Media and Pearson, two publishers that care deeply about learning, innovation, knowledge, and personal growth.
Today I’m thrilled to announce that O’Reilly Media, Inc., has acquired the Pearson stake in Safari, and Safari is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of O’Reilly Media, Inc. Safari will continue to operate as an independent company, and Pearson Education will remain a strategic content partner of Safari.
Safari’s first 13 years as a joint venture are a tremendous success story when it comes to competitors working together to grow new markets and opportunities that benefit everyone, including our customers. We’ve helped to bring the best professional content in the world to tens of thousands of companies and institutions, representing millions of people, and that’s something we at Safari are very proud of.
Safari has helped bring the knowledge from leading publishers to millions of people at many of the world’s most innovative companies. Deepening our relationship with O’Reilly gives us the chance to do even more to connect people and organizations with the best content and the brightest minds.
Now as an O’Reilly company, we look forward to continue delivering the best content in the world to help professionals just like you and the organizations they work for to learn, grow, and do exceptional things.
