Edtech Startups

Education in India has increasingly become one of the hottest topics in the last few years. From lack of creativity in the Indian education system to lack of skill development, the Indian education is in desperate need of a drastic change. Edtech startups enable the learners to use technology to study in a totally unconventional way. Paired with video content and online courses, these startups in India have given people a new way to learn. Not to forget, every Edtech Business is an education business first.

This will have a significant impact on the Edtech market that has the potential to touch $1.96 Bn by 2021 from where it stands now i.e $ 247 Mn. A good reason to understand and learn more about this ecosystem.

So what are the focus leading to this growth? What are the expected future trends to watch in this sector? And most importantly, what are some of the grave challenges to overcome to gain the most from this opportunity?
