Would the Rise of Indian EdTech Sector be Sustainable Enough in the Post-Covid World?
The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the education sector as physical mode of learning seems to be a thing of the past with ‘online learning’/‘e-learning’ becoming the new normal. India's ed-tech ecosystem has turned the present crisis into an opportunity and witnessed a rapid rise in the number of active players that attracted venture capital investments worth $1.4 billion in 2020. A report by RedSeer and Omidyar Network India shows that India’s EdTech user base – including both paid and free users – in K-12 and post K-12 segments has doubled from 45 million to 90 million during the pandemic. In addition to this, the government of India is also promoting digital education across rural and urban settings and launched the National Education Policy 2020.
