Each issue of the PEriodical highlights one key sector of prime importance to the industry, underscoring the trends, disruptions and growth that the sector entails.
The sector in focus for this issue of the PEriodical is EdTech
The introduction of tech in education is drastically changing the way we learn today. The sector holds immense growth promise. Favourable demographics, huge market size, mushrooming internet base, Jio’s digital disruption, promising 7Cs (cost, content, creativity, communication, convenience, capability, career ) and the USD 191bn IT Sector (sizeable captive client) glorify the demand side of the Edtech market. On the supply-side an emerging entrepreneurial base, government initiatives, emerging technologies etc. are set to make India emerge as one of the largest e-learning markets in the world and perhaps the single largest provider of global talent. M&A/ Partnership strategies will also play an instrumental in driving growth and investor interest
In this issue of the PEriodical, the section ‘Across the Table’, includes insights from Mr Nikhil Barshikar, Founder and Managing Director at Imarticus Learning on the burgeoning EdTech industry in India, the opportunities that surfaced on account of the upskilling wave, the pandemic and the growth trajectory for companies in this space.
