Keep an eye out for our annual StartEdu Competition — a nationwide challenge that seeks to identify and invest in the best early-stage education and edtech startups.
India has one of the largest education systems in the world with nearly 1.5 Mn schools and ~250 Mn students. While 25% of all K-12 schools are private schools, they contribute to nearly 40% of the enrolment. This scale extends to even higher education where India has ~36,000 institutes enrolling over 30 M students.
The total education market in India is currently pegged at ~$100 Bn with higher education contributing to 60%, school education at 38% and pre-school segment at 2%. However, despite the huge numbers and the fact that education continues to be the highest spend for any household after food and grocery; the quality of education leaves a lot to be desired.
With the private sector expected to account for 55-60% share in overall enrolment in K-12 schools by 2022, there will be a growing trend of adoption of ancillary tools that can improve the delivery of education. This poses a huge opportunity for startups aiming to improve the learning outcomes of students who are teaching students in a way they want to learn – byte sized content offered in a gamified environment fostering peer to peer learning. They are able to engage and retain students’ attention far more effectively. In the next 15 years, India will be among the youngest nations in the world with nearly 140 Mn people in the college-going age group.
